|Description:||You will be amazed and delighted when you tour the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, and discover the ingenuity of man in his quest to develop the perfect instrument to open the hard shell of a nut. Beginning with nutting stones from the Archaic period, a visitor will see a 2000 year old Roman nutcracker, delicately carved 16th and 17th century figures, and brightly painted modern day creations. There are nutcrackers of many different woods, iron, brass, bronze, porcelain, and even ivory. There are boxed sets of nutcrackers and nut picks that graced the tables of Victorian times, lifelike animals, mechanical designs to crack even the black walnut, and nutcrackers to make you laugh in amusement.
Displaying well over 5,000 nutcrackers originating from over 40 countries, the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum is a definitely a place you will want to visit.
