Museum Must For Nutcracker Lovers

My wife really loves Nutcrackers and we both enjoyed this museum. Be sure to watch the film beforehand which gives you a good overview of the history.

we were looking for a plain functional nutcracker, did not find much selection, but the funky authentic wooden version, cuckoo clocks and all things Bavarian and generally winter wonderlandish abound. Sweet place and lots of ideas for gifts and souvenirs....

We just dropped by this place to get a feel of the shops in Leavenworth. We thought it's going to be a great museum, though that expectation is a bit high. We should have known it's going to be a little place with just enough interesting items for a few minutes to peruse. It's still a touch of something different... More

My son is a novice collector (he has 7 of them), so this was a must see for our family. We had no idea about the history of nutcrackers. We found this little museum to packed full of information (from the short video, to the hundreds of nutcrackers on display. Some of which were centuries old). Made me excited enough... More

We took our granddaughter to this museum and were over whelmed by the sheer number of nutcrackers! The organizion is amazing! They are grouped in sections such as "Garden Club", Presidents, Disney Characters and Pirates. There are GIANT nutcrackers and early nutcrackers. It is fun to view all of them! Give yourself time to see them all

Not a collector, but this is a must when in Leavenworth. Well worth the modest admission price. Who knew how many different kinds of practical and decorative nutcrackers have been made my artisans and craftsmen over the millennium?

We found a nutcracker that looked like Donald Trump. I think it was the hair. The collection is really amazing - even if you think you won't be into it, you'll end up getting fascinated in spite of yourself. A really neat little museum

Hubby and I visited on a Monday afternoon. This place is awesome if you love nutcrackers!! You can't even imagine how many nutcrackers are here. Takes about an hour or so to see it all. They don't open until afternoon, tho. Downstairs, there's a shop where they sell genuine nutcrackers from Germany. We loved it. Even hubby said it exceeded... More
