This museum is well worth a visit. The number and variety of nutcrackers is astounding. The museum even has some very valuable antique nutcrackers. There is a short video which explains the history of nutcrackers. I very much enjoyed my visit to this musuem and I not even partial to nutcrackers.

I happen to love nutcrackers, so I enjoyed the museum, my sister was bored. The price is right and the lady who ran the museum was friendly. Probably not for every one.

Went with the family and thought it a little touristy but they wanted to go in. I left amazed at the quantity, quality and variety of the display. They had a lot of the standard nutcrackers which I expected, but some of the old mechanical or hand carved ones really made it worth the visit for me. Sure fits in... More

This is something different to enjoy in Leavenworth from the shops and parks. You can see a video at the beginning that talks about the history of nutcrackers; photography is prohibited except with 2 of the giant super-cool nutcrackers they have on display (Karl and Mouse King) Ticket costs $2.50.

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.
