after gunning on the Eastern Shore Saturday morning, we drove to Havre de Grace, Md. to visit the Decoy Museum. This a must stop for anyone interested in Water fowling, Maryland history, or Folk Art. This is a fascinating collection of Waterfowl history and the men that pioneered it.

This is a small museum, but is wonderful for learning about the fowl life of the Chesapeake.If you go to the Havre de Grace Boat Basin you can walk the rebuilt boardwalk right to the museum The boardwalk is an enjoyable walk

We had an amazing tour of the museum!! The effort to display the amazing craft was presented in a format that held your attention from start to finish. The number of artifacts was very impressive. The display of huge bow guns used to slay scores of ducks at a time was very eye opening. This is a must do trip... More

This museum is both art and history. It is a great place to learn about Havre de Grace being the Decoy capital of the world and to learn about the most famous Decoy carver ever. It is a must visit

Was walking by the museum and decided to check it out. I am not a decoy person, however, the museum was well worth the visit. Decoys are now wood art and all of the decoys were amazing. A lot of history about the use of decoys in hunting and a interesting info on men who became legends in the decoys... More

Half history museam and half art museum. Facility and showcases are well maintained. Very informative on local history and the art of decoys. Great place to visit for all ages. Most weekends they have interactive sessions with local decoy artist sand boat makers. An enjoyable visit for the whole family or even a first date.

I found the Decoy Museum to be informative and educational. My wife who is Vegan and an animal rights person, had to walk away from some of the displays as the displays exemplify the mass killing of ducks.

I went here with a friend who lives in VA, and I have to be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I wasn't sure if I was going to like seeing guns and replicas of ducks. BUT, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot! I especially liked the sinkboat display (which was located within... More
