FACT OF INTEREST

THE NUTCRACKER LADY'S JUNE NEWSLETTER FOR IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE!

 

The Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum is nestled at the eastern edge of the Cascade Mountain in the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, Washington. Here you will find over 6,000 nutcrackers of all kinds in wood, metal, ivory, porcelain and modern materials, and in designs from serious to whimsical, ecclesiastical to risqué, menacing to cute and cuddly, and from simple to works of art. And yes, you will find the hundreds of traditional toy soldiers with the big mouth that make their appearance in nearly every American home at Christmas time.

The Nutcracker Museum traces the origin of nut-opening devices from primitive nutting stones to elaborately carved figures and shows specimens from over 50 different countries. Visitors have come from over 75 countries to view the nutcrackers and thousands more have watched as the Nutcracker Museum was shown on Arts and Entertainment, the Food Network, and Sunday Morning CBS.

When you visit the museum, be sure to have your picture taken with Karl, our 6 foot Bavarian nutcracker carved in Oberammergau.

The museum, founded in 1995, is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation.
