FACT OF INTEREST
Since the Wagner's opened the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum in 1995, it has been visited by 74 foreign countries.  When you are in Leavenworth plan to see us too! 
 

WELCOME TO THE LEAVENWORTH NUTCRACKER MUSEUM

 

Yes, it is truly amazing!!!!

Over the centuries, man has devised many ways to open the nutshell to capture the delicious morsel inside. There is no other tool that has been made in so many different designs and with such a variety of materials as the nutcracker.

And the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum displays over 6,000 specimens of nutcrackers from Roman times to present day. Yes, you will be amazed at man's ingenuity!!!

Visitors can view a 14 minute video of the history of the nutcrackers before touring the museum, and if time is allowed, students can go on a "nutcracker hunt". Even parents enjoy helping their youngsters with this activity!
