“Quaint but ncie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Small museum with lots of interesting things to look at and buy. Good for all ages and a nice place to visit, especially if its not a good beach day. Great front porch.

“a piece of history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is one of the few pieces of history that remain along the Virginia Beach boardwalk (near 11th Street). The museum is very quaint. It's a nice place to stop to find some shade and enjoy carved birds. They have a small gift shop with a nicer selection of items than the souvenir shops along Atlantic Avenue.

“Wooden ducks?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I was intrigued by all the carved birds here - really a neat talent! My children just couldn't get past why anyone would spend time carving wooden ducks so I think they missed the point. There was a nice man carving ducks and told my girls about how talented women carvers are. I thought he was sweet and talked to them a lot.

It is right on the beach so stop by if you have an extra 15 minutes.

“Nice free museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a little museum about ducks and duck hunting. If you have a chance stop in and take a look. I gave a small donation but it is not required in order to visit.

“Great Free Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Had a great discussion with one of the carvers - very interesting to see the work that goes into turning a block of wood into a life-like Wood Duck. Lots of examples of decoys and carvings. A new upstairs exhibit displays items from Virginia Beach going back to the late 1800's. Very interesting to see photos of what used to be along the boardwalk.
