I didn't know if it would be interesting but it was something to do and I was fascinated and impressed. There is a short video then you walk around and see 1,000's of nutcrackers. I didn't know how popular they were. Pretty impressive. I can't remember how many she said were in there. Look for the one the size of... More

Who knew there where so many types of nutcrackers. An educational and fun walk through history. An educational viedo at the start gives you a look at what you about to see. This is an nice touch if you arent a collector .

This museum is well worth a visit. The number and variety of nutcrackers is astounding. The museum even has some very valuable antique nutcrackers. There is a short video which explains the history of nutcrackers. I very much enjoyed my visit to this musuem and I not even partial to nutcrackers.

I happen to love nutcrackers, so I enjoyed the museum, my sister was bored. The price is right and the lady who ran the museum was friendly. Probably not for every one.

Went with the family and thought it a little touristy but they wanted to go in. I left amazed at the quantity, quality and variety of the display. They had a lot of the standard nutcrackers which I expected, but some of the old mechanical or hand carved ones really made it worth the visit for me. Sure fits in... More

This is something different to enjoy in Leavenworth from the shops and parks. You can see a video at the beginning that talks about the history of nutcrackers; photography is prohibited except with 2 of the giant super-cool nutcrackers they have on display (Karl and Mouse King) Ticket costs $2.50.

This attraction really lives up to its name. I didn't think that there could be thousands of nutcrackers in this small museum, but I was proven wrong! Nutcrackers of different designs are displayed, from centuries past, from every continent, from renown craftsmen and from private collections. It is well worth the trip for craftsmen, woodworkers and art aficionados as well.... More
