So many nutcrackers to choose! I liked that many were not made in China. They were more expensive to have German made ones, but the quality was evident.

I don't think I've ever seen so many nutcrackers in the life. The museum is $5 to enter. Worth it. And next door is a store where you can buy handcrafted nutcrackers. If you're a collector, this place is for you.

Short video to watch explaining the history of the nutcracker, and hundreds to look at from giant size to the size of a toothpick head.

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.

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
