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.
