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 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

This place was a real gem for my son who loves nutcrackers. (he collects them) It was quite inexpensive and it occupied the kids for a good hour or so. Check it out!

We truly enjoyed the extremely large amount of nutcrackers on display. We were able to see how nutcrackers evolved over the years as well as the different types from different countries.

I am a history buff and really enjoyed this Museum. I could have spent more time there. It is extremely interesting as they have nutcrackers from 6 feet tall to tiny, tiny miniatures that were hand carved. Some are quite ancient. All are fascinating.

Lots of interesting nutcrackers. I never knew there were so many different kinds. It might not hold the interest of small children.

They probably have more nutcrackers than any place within thousands of miles. This would be a great visit for a nutcracker enthusiast, but is pretty repetitious for the rest of us.

The Nutcracker Museum is easy to miss. Up a flight of stairs above a storefront, and hosted by two knowledgeable and lovely elderly women, it is a Leavenworth gem. The hostess said there were over 6,000 nutcrackers, nicely displayed. There are ancient nut cracking tools, century-old nutcrackers, many themed types, as well as beautiful traditional Christmas and soldier nutcrackers. The... More
