“Astounding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I had no idea there were that many varieties of nutcrackers in the world let alone in one place, AND how far back in time and place they dated.

“A Great Look at a Huge Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This was a fun place to experience. While the store below has an impressive collection of nutcrackers as well, it's worth at least one look at the not-for-sale collection as well. It covers so many styles, from old to new. Worth a look!

“LOVE Nutcrackers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This museum should not be missed! Even if nutcrackers are not your thing finding out the history behind them is quite interesting. I am a fan of nutcrackers and I found out things I never knew about them. Even the non-traditional nutcrackers are amazing, they have themes like star wars, wizard of oz, and easter just to mention a few. Its only $2.50 to get in and the money goes to the upkeep of the museum.

“If you love Nutcrackers, this is a MUST SEE.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I would probably not be wrong if I said this has to be the location of the most and widest variety of nutcrackers under one roof in the US. If you are into Nutcrackers, you must visit this place. They have a little video giving you a nutcracker background and then you can tour their huge collection - which is interesting , historical and international in flavor. They also have a wide collection to purchase from in the front area of the museum and will give you tips on what to look for if you are new to nutcrackers.

“Lots of crackers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Liked it all. Tons and tons of nutcrackers. I was not expecting to see so many of them in one pace at one time.
