If you enjoy nutcrackers you've got to see it! There were some amazing pieces of art, as well as lots of funny nutcrackers. Our favorites were the Disney and Star Wars. Totally worth the small fee.

We saw more nutcrackers here than when we visited Germany. Was only open in afternoon time. But must see video first then walk around to be delighted.

This is certainly a museum to open your eyes to the art of nut cracking and the means to do it. There are thousands of nutcrackers of all different shapes and sizes along with the story of nutcrackers. To sum up, a great museum well worth the visit.

This is a huge collection of nutcrackers from various era and styles. My children really enjoyed the museum and had a good time. The introduction video is very informational.
