My kids adore nutcrackers, especially my youngest one, so this was a great adventure for her to explore. The amount of nutcrackers was pretty overwhelming and definitely FUN!

Loved, loved, loved! Love that there was a 15 minute video overview before we started our tour. Great history. Amazed at the vast collection of nutcracker varieties that Mrs. Arlene Wagner has collected through the years. Yes, she even served behind the register and was so pleasant. Open-mindedness to discover more about the "history of the nutcracker". A "must see"... More

I'll be the 1st to admit that I don't know a thing about nutcrackers, but I learned my life's worth in this little museum. There is an admission of $5 for adults and no restrooms so go before you get there! Who knew there were so many different types of Nutcrackers or how to tell authentic ones from fake ones?... More

How on earth did they get such a collection?! Truly intriguing is the variety of pieces that are on display in varying shapes and sizes. You can even watch a short movie and buy some rare pieces if you're upto it. A true gem in this lovely town!

This is a very small museum and seems crowded. Some of the nutcrackers on display were definitely beautiful and intriguing however there were many which seemed to be put there just to cover the space. Please do not take small kids as they will not be able to appreciate the design and history.
