  • This place is amazing! The collection they have is super impressive. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. They even have scavenger hunts for the kids. Highly recommended!
  • Nutcrackers.. I thought-what the heck. Really? Then we went in. Holy cow. About 7,000 nutcrackers. All arranged. All sorts. Start with the 19 minute movie. See how they are made and see how the museum came to be. They have 'em from the REALLY olden times, hundreds of years ago, to the modern ones. Metal, wood, ivory. From every country, every civilization. It's amazing. Russians. Germans, Americans. Hitler, Washington, Hillary, Jimmy Carter.. There's a gift shop, and I found one I hope will like it. Try it. You may enjoy it.
