National Cookie Cutter
Historical Museum Exhibit
You can visit a NATIONAL museum during your visit to the Joplin History and Mineral Museum! The National Cookie Cutter Historical Museum is the only one in the United States!
Check out thousands of cutters - vintage, advertising, and seasonal. This huge display of handmade cutters includes many from other countries. You might see cookie cutters you remember being used by family members.
Come see how cookie cutters show the history and culture of America from the late 1800s to the present.
National members of the Cookie Cutters Collectors Club have donated these cutters for your learning and enjoyment.
Please select a complimentary cutter from the basket to take home. You don't have to make cookies to enjoy the cookie cutters! Cut deli meat, cheese, bread, etc.
Cookie cutters are about much more than cookies!
