  • Loved this museum. My 5 year old son did as well. Other than realizing there were no hands-on exhibits, he was quite happy to find the strangest, best, craziest, scariest, etc nutcrackers available. Staff was quite helpful and nice. Additionally, active duty military families get in free.
  • $5 admission is money well spent. Such an adorable mom and pop museum. Over 6,000 nutcrackers to see. Love how they are displayed. The staff is nice and they offer a scavenger hunt for children. The stairs leading to the museum are steep, but if you need a more accessible way to enter the museum they do have an elevator. 40 mins to an hour is all you need.
  • This was my first time visiting a nutcracker museum. I took my children and they had lots of fun doing a scavenger hunt. Different hunts for different ages. The variety of nutcrackers was impressive. I was awed by the older historical pieces. The kids liked the themed pieces. Well worth the time and price.
  • They have a lot of nutcrackers from all over the world and explain the history of the nutcracker. Walk in go up the stairs and enter through another door on your left. You'll pay the entry fee. You have the option to watch a 14 min video that talks about the history of the nutcracker or you can just dive right in to the place. Be mindful there certain areas where they dont allow pictures to be taken.
  • My wife collected Nutcrackers for a few years but went to Stacking Dolls because of easier display. This shop is a paradise for anyone who likes Nutcrackers. Plan to spend a lot of time in here. Truly an amazing place.
