Amazing collection of nutcrackers including a large number of antique nutcrackers. A nice introductory film is included and we found the collection to be well laid out and lovely people running the exhibit.

Impressive collection of nutcrackers organized along themes, in a somewhat cramped space. I enjoyed looking at the mechanics of some of the nutcrackers though.

Too much for the I to see. It really is aimed at collectors of German Nutcracker Collectors. If you have nothing else to do and want to get out of the weather. Then take thirty minutes to look around.

This can be a sleepy little town, so it was fun to pop in here and see all the very different nutcrackers. They have traditional and also very modern ones.

Miss Arlene sits at the desk of the collection that she and her husband amassed over the years. It was so fun to have my daughter interested in the nutcrackers!

Nice place to visit. Almost 7,000 different nutcrackers displayed. A nice video telling about how they are made and another one about the history of nutcrackers.
