When you think of Seguin, Texas, several things may come to mind. Pecans. Rodeos. A vibrant history. However, one thing you may not think of when you dwell on the little city just 35 miles outside of San Antonio is nutcrackers. Interestingly enough, Seguin is home to the world’s largest nutcracker museum. According to an article published on the website Only in Your State, Pape’s Pecan House is home to over 8,000 of the little figurines.

The article goes on to mention the founders of the museum, Kenneth Pape and his father Hugo, began collecting nutcrackers over 50 years ago. Since then, they have amassed a collection that features characters of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Additionally, the Pape’s Pecan House website mentions more than nut cracking tools can be found at the museum. A giant pecan is available as a backdrop for pictures out front, and visitors can also purchase pecans and other items in the store.

If you would like to plan your own trip to one of Texas’ most unique places, the museum is located on 5440 S Highway 123 BypSeguin, Texas. Store hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and 8 a.m. – Noon on Saturdays.
