There is so much to see at the Nutcracker Museum -- it's a lot to see in a fairly small space. Although I was apprehensive about taking the kids in, it turned out to be a great experience for the whole family. Whether you're looking for traditional & historic nutcrackers, or newer nutcrackers that reflect current social interests, this is... More

For the Owners to constantly suck money out of the Leavenworth economy, this place has nothing to offer that is worth the income they make from festivals and other things. These place has nothing that is worth this hijacked financial ransom that is paid to them by the City of Leavenworth and the people who come here to be part... More

This museum shows so many different nutcrackers you won't believe. There are not only the typical decorative ones but also many mechanical nutcrackers from all around the world. Even some ancient stones which were used to crack nuts can be seen. They also offer a short movie about the history of nutcrackers. The museum is a non profit organisation so... More

We had no idea nutcrackers were such a "thing"! It was astounding the shapes, sizes and figures of the items on display here! Definitely worth a visit.

This place was crammed with nutcrackers, every type you can imagine, in every inch. I had no idea that so many existed! There is a 15 minute film which was a bit dated but provided a good orientation to the background of nutcrackers. Certain ones you can take pictures of, but others, you cannot. Museum is located on second floor... More

Touring a collection of nutcrackers is nice, but the elderly ladies running the place are far too protective and not as friendly as they could be. The price was not worth it for us to glance at nutcrackers. I know they need to make some money, but perhaps they could do that by selling them...rather than charging to view them.

Amazing how many nutcrackers are displayed here. Wonderful place. Great 14-minute video as an introduction. The pieces were thoughtfully organized into metal nutcrackers, various themes/characters, and so on. Some items for sale as well. My head was spinning when we were done.

We got pretty much exactly what we were expecting and then some. Was it a room full of nutcrackers? Yes. Followed by an even bigger room full of nutcrackers? Yes. Was the intro video from the 1980s? Yes. Were some of the nutcrackers creepy, odd or even slightly racist? Yes. Will I remember this as key part of my trip... More
