This museum is a great place for everyone, I have taken my grandchildren and my 90 year old mother. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable.

I lived down the street from this museum for several years. I have been there several times and even attended a wedding in the lobby. I can't even begin to describe how amazing the carvings are in this museum. There are some carvings that look so real that you would not be able to tell the difference between the actual... More

As a long time admirer and collector of woodcarving this museum is an absolute pleasure and although there a lot of decoys there also some splendid examples of other bird types. It is a case of the very best coming last as the earlier galleries concentrate mainly on decoys, and I skipped through these fairly quickly to get to the... More

A bit confused as to what this museum is. If you want to see ART (decoy type) of ducks, then go. The lake and park near-by is fun.

It was a great place to see once. I enjoyed the artistic renditions of the water fowl. It was pricy and not a very big place.

Yes, the carved birds are beautiful and amazing, and the ground and building are beautiful too. But what amazed me is the history of how people hunted birds in various ways, using decoy or not. It really shows how far we have come.

A small museum, but a gem. It has the most extensive collection I have seen of duck decoys. Viewing them one realizes not only the tight relationship between the useful and the artistic, but also something about the waterways of the Delmarva peninsula and the lives of the people who have called that region home. The building and layout of... More

I have driven by the sign for this museum on the way to Ocean City hundreds of times. But finally someone clued me in about it. I am so glad. Its wonderful on a lot of levels. First it is about decoys. And not just decoys- they have examples from all over the country. I imagine scholars writing dissertations about... More

This is a wonderful museum that showcases the art of decoy carving. They have a gallery dedicated to world champions and the displays are not only amazingly beautiful but some you can't even figure out how they mounted! If you're ever in Salisbury, MD you really should visit this museum!

Provides an interesting look at the Eastern Shore and how the water fowl has impacted the area. Great Carvings by the Ward Bros. and more. Nice way to spend the day
