Displaying over 6000 nutcrackers, the Nutcracker Museum is a unique experience for visitors. People have come from all over the world specifically to view this unique collection. You’ll find nutcrackers from Roman times to modern day and nutting stones from the Archaic period. Students will enjoy a “nutcracker hunt”, our version of a scavenger hunt!

Only open between 1PM and 5PM. The cost is minimal $5.00 for adults and discounts for Military, Children and seniors. They have over 5000 nutcrackers, but I was actually more intrigued by the Nutcracker shop downstairs.

This place is apparently only open 4 hours a day so we did not experience the museum/shop. We walked by several times and it was closed and this was a Saturday during Oktoberfest.

We have never seen so many different nutcrackers in one place before. They are here in all sizes and colors. Some are hand carved.

Even if you are not into nutcrackers you will enjoy this place. Some extremely old and ornate crackers to some super detailed wooden crackers. Thousands if not more. Nice video that gives some history of the German crackers.

I spent about 30 minutes here and found this to be interesting. The collection of nutcrackers is huge and eclectic. The video on the history of nutcrackers was interesting.
