  • 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 awe...  read more »
  • A collection of more than 6000 Nutcracker. It's worth the half hour that you will devote and 5 dollars of entry. Lovely welcome.

  • So overwhelmed by number of dolls. Divided into various themes are spectacular. Before joining wasn't expecting too much, but was betrayed in good shape. I think if you're going to Leavenworth should look absolutely.

  • Very cool. Much more interesting and artistic than I anticipated. Over 6000 nutcrackers, many of different styles, cultures, themes, and eras. Including some from 1870. Go check it out, spend an hour or two
  • First I want to make it clear that this review is not on the museum itself, but rather about the old lady at the reception desk. We really like the museum and each time we went to Leavenworth, we made it a routine to visit the museum. Last weekend was our most recent trip to the place. This time, again we enjoyed the amazing collections of delicate nutcrackers, especially those antique carved wooden ones. However, it had been a horrible experience when we brought a wine stopper to check out at the reception. When I handed the wine stopper to the old lady, she immediately changed her face and started accusing me of changing the price sticker to a cheaper one. I was absolutely shocked by the accusation and my brain just went blank. I didn't know how to respond as I never expected such a terrible thing to happen at such a nice little museum! After a few minutes, when we exit, I told the lady I didn't do anything and her accusation made me very sad. Because she is such an old lady, I decided not to say anything else and make a scene. But this incident did make our trip to the museum very upsetting and it felt like swallowing a fly if not worse. It's very unfortunate that someone could do this to anyone out of blank, be it an old lady or not.
  • This was so much more interesting than I expected it to be! I plan to go back, just so I can spend more time looking at the fascinating collection of antique nutcrackers from around the world.
  • So many different ones and things I've never seen
  • holy rip off, they over charge for this.
