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

I had no idea it would be so big! There are thousands of nutcrackers on display, ranging from ancient European antiques to modern themed ones. The historical ones are fascinating, some using levers and screws to break the nut shells,some for tiny nuts, some for huge ones. Well worth a visit! There is a small fee to enter.

If you like museums and nutcrackers than this place is for you. Many unusual and antique ones. I especially liked the ivory and metal nut picks from the past.

It is what it says...a Nutcracker Museum, dated and in need of some curator love. The Nutcracker Queen does her best but she's in her 90's...I expected a nicer selection to purchase. Kids enjoyed a short walk through.

There is a 5 dollar per person charge for this fun little place. Amazing amount of nutcrackers lots of different styles. We almost didn't go because of the charge but we were glad we did. Fun way to spend an hour, lady running the place was friendly and helpful.

The museum specializes in Nutcrackers of every kind and shape from around the world. Many of the ones from Germany are hand carved wooden crackers of all sizes and brightly painted as soldier figurines.

The Smithsonian it's not, but this humble little museum is worth a stop if you have any interest in things nutcracker. Watch the short film that tells the nutcracker history and how to tell the real things from the Asian knock-offs. The facility is upstairs off of Front Street in the heart of Leavenworth. Admission is cheap and it really... More
