I always thought Nutcrackers were just for Christmas decoration. Was I ever wrong? This place is full of thousands of Nutcrackers. They have old antique Nutcrackers and Nutcrackers for about everything imaginable. I loved visiting and would recommend spending at least an hour there. They have about a 12 minute introductory film available for viewing too. Lots of adult size... More

One of my favorite places. Nutcrackers to interest both children and adults alike. Activities for smaller kids. Several private collections are on display. I can't say enough nice things about the curator, Miss Arlene. This place has enough things to be interesting but not so much that you will feel overwhelmed. Just right.

They have a 12 video to watch and then many rooms of various nutcrackers to see. Can really see all in a hour. Can take pictures only of a few of them. Make sure you don't need to use the bathroom as they don't have one. You have to use the bathroom across the street at the park. Strange. The... More

I had no idea there were that many different kinds of nutcrackers and that much history. It is a good learning experience

Enjoyed touring the many different styles of Nutcrackers over the years and was happy to support a local not for profit organization in its mission.

Neat place to go to but very touristy. Has a lot of nutcrackers for sale at pretty decent prices as well.

Hi Rachel, The museum does not have many nutcrackers for sale, just to clarify. You may be referring to the gift shop on the main floor that is not part of the Nutcracker Museum at all. More

Tons of things to look at. Basically a giant gift shop. Probably the best place in town to get German souvenirs. Biggest and best selection in town.

This store is fun to walk through to check out not only the hundreds of different Nussknacker, but Cuckoo clocks, Hummel figurines and other Christmas items.

I had no idea that there were so many. The little angle is a working nutcracker the size of a pinhead. So much history. Watch the 15 min movie.
