“A Must-See!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I know, I know, nutcrackers. Yawn. But no- it's a wonderful place to visit and get a sense of history, geography and winsomeness. There were several life-size nutcrackers and some tiny, tiny ones too. There was a collection of sort of risque offerings that was fun to peruse and many, many interesting representations of historical characters, past and present, represented as well. It's inexpensive and worth the time- give yourself at least an hour here.

“Fascinating World-Class Collection”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Although I had been to Leavenworth several times before, this was the first time I actually visited the Nutcracker Museum. It's small, but what a wonderful and quirky collection... starting with the nutcracker from Roman times (one of only three in existence from the period in question). It is fascinating to see the evolution of the nutcracker from wood carvings in the 1500s until today. Extensive examples from all around the world from the 1500s, 1600s, 1800s, and the contemporary era.
