This was our first visit to The Nutcracker Museum. I don't climb stairs, and didn't know they had an elevator available! We were overwhelmed with this vast number of Nutcrackers on display in the museum. The founder of the museum was delightful, and full of wonderful stories. She's developed a treasure hunt for younger visitors to find a specific nutcrackers scattered throughout the museum. There are antique nutcrackers, mechanical nutcrackers, and even newer nutcrackers. There are signed nutcrackers that have been donated to the museum for sale, and who could visit without purchasing one? I'd recommend this Museum to any family visiting Leavenworth.
