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

Just go into the shop next door. It isn't worth the admission price. Although military gets in for free, so it would be a way to warm up and pass some time for free while waiting for the lighting ceremony to begin.

My son loves nutcrackers so we had to stop. Such a wonderful collection! We also liked the Christmas Village shop area and picked up a few pieces to add to our collection. Make sure your kids understand "look but don't touch" as there are breakables everywhere, especially when little ones back up without looking first ;-)

Weren't sure what to expect, as I haven't been a big fan of nutcrackers but learned a lot from the little video they show, and had no idea there were so many, over 5000 in the museum. Spent an hour looking at them all, from different countries, and from the 1700's up to the present. The workmanship was very evident,... More
