I was unaware of the number of different nutcrackers there were. It was nice to see that they just weren't for Christmas.

I never thought I'd visit a place like this. Now I'm so glad I did! Only a $5 admission and it was HUGE! Not just the Christmas nutcrackers, but all the tools used to crack nuts going back thousands of years AND the history of how important nuts have been for a source of food. Different nutcrackers from all over... More

Tired of walking in the rain so we ducked in for a quick view since admission was only $5. We spent 30 minutes viewing the considerably large collection. From the primitive to the intricately ornate, the collection was interesting and continuously sparked new topics of conversation.

I didn't know there where So Many Nutcrakers... It was cool to see them all. You're going to walk around like 4 hallways full of them. The time you're going to spend it really depends that how much you wanna see and read. But in the end you're going to have a nice time.

This museum obviously fits very well with the theme of the town, and it is worth stopping in to see. It is free, which is nice, and it is surprising just how many Nutcrackers they actually have. I would suggest stopping in, but it isn't a stay for hours kind of place.

The museum is fun to visit and full of unique nutcrackers. We go every time we come which is three or four times a year. Because my kids love it and they also have a great clearance section and an awesome selection of nutcrackers of many themes. like Alice in Wonderland Star Wars and many more it is just a... More

Great bit of knowledge inside the Nutcracker Museum. So many various styles of nutcrackers over the years. My favorite nutcracker was a group from the Wizard of Oz. Enjoyed the 14 min movie on the history of nutcrackers and most of all I enjoyed talking to Karls wife, the owner of the museum. Thought we would spend about 20 minutes... More

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.
