I didn't even know they made these many styles of nutcrackers. Furthermore, the people working were super enthusiastic about them too. such a fun time!

If you're looking to have your mental circuits crash at the sheer overwhelming amount of different nutcrackers in one location, this is it. There's a LEGO nutcracker; one carved on a single toothpick, one so small you need a magnifying glass to see it....and those...More

This is a must visit place in Leavenworth, especially with children. This is in Main st and is unmissable. The charges for the museum are $5 for adults and $2 for youth and the money spent is worth it. They have an amazing collection of...More

There are a lot of nutcrackers in this museum. A lot. Perhaps too many for modern visitors as the nutcrackers are not curated to tell a story, but rather simply to fit into a small space. I’m very glad I visited and spent about an...More

I will honestly say this was not as riveting as I hoped it would be. The 14 minute history of nutcrackers film kept my husband highly entertained, but the museum just wasn't my cup of tea. It is very clean, quiet, and the employees are...More

We laughed about going to the Nutcracker Museum until we got inside. It is amazing! At only $5.00 for an adult. $3.50 senior/kids, there are thousands of nutcrackers, including those that date back before Christ. It turned out to be a highlight and an educational...More

My girlfriends and I visited Leavenworth WA just prior to Oktoberfest. Each day we would venture into town to make yet another discovery. One morning we spied along the main street, a modest sign alerting the observant tourist to a museum. At first glance, the...More
