Resource:Nutcracker Museum
Provider:Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum
Summary:Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision). People of all ages love nutcrackers -- as much for their functionality as their whimsical design. At this time of year, we see nutcrackers in holiday displays and on dining room tables.
Description:The glorious strains of music from Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Ballet" permeate our homes as well as the mall, reinforcing our fascination with nutcrackers during the holidays. But what is the history of the nutcracker? How are they made? How many designs are there? How many different ways are there to crack a nut?

Answers to these questions and more await you at the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, located in the state of Washington, and the destination of today's virtual field trip. When you get to the site, you will see the words "A virtual tour of the museum." Below are 2 sections of photographs of some of the "residents." (Click on the photos to see larger images).

Then using the menu at the top, look under "The Museum" to learn about antique nutcrackers, the history of the museum and more. Under the "Information" menu, learn even more including:
  • The History of Nutcrackers

  • Nuts Are Good For You - Check out the videos on cracking a nut and styles of nutcrackers

  • Museum in Germany - Watch a video (with some German narration) of the nutcrackers displayed there, including the largest nutcracker in the world!
(Parents, as always, should preview videos to determine suitability).

You can cap this off by watching video clips of the Nutcracker Ballet here.
