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

I thought this place was a great break from the over priced shopping in leavenworth. So many different kinds and characters. My twelve year old really enjoyed it also. Fair admission price was a blessing.

If you want to see nutcrackers - then this is the place to go. Be sure to pick up a visitors guide, in the guide if you find Carl ( he is a nut cracker ) He shows up 17 times - circle him. Take it to the museum and show them and they have a little gift for you.... More

If you you enjoy Nutcrackers then this is a must visit. It's a bit overwhelming with how many nutcrackers they have to view. They did a great job displaying everything and it's all very interesting. This is a must-visit if you are new to Leavenworth.

This is the most amazing collection of nutcrackers I have ever seen, from tiny itsy bitysy to one that is life sized. They are all displayed according to theme, and if there is a theme of anything, there are nutcrackers. Plan about an hour or more to see them all.

They display them upstairs and sell them downstairs. There are hundreds of different nutcrackers, enough to make you dizzy.

We started with the 14-minute video & then looked around at the zillions of nutcrackers. Very interesting! Something for everyone there, because there are nutcrackers emulating all sorts of people, from presidents & inventors to Star Wars characters.

We walked past the museum on a recent visit to Leavenworth and since it was open, decided to give it a look. For the cost - $2.50/adult, $1/child it was a fun and different activity. We watched the 15 minute video (recommended) and learned a lot about the history and making of nutcrackers. I had no idea how many different... More

Maybe this was something that interested someone else....but not my thing....felt like I had stepped back in time and the admission price was way above what it should be. Not impressed.

I agree that this is a must-see attraction in Leavenworth. First, you must see the film. Notice that the lady behind the cash register is the one who made it all happen. There are ROOMS and ROOMS of nutcrackers. Just when you think that you've seen everything. There is more. Don't miss the numerous historic nutcrackers from ancient times. We... More
