Learned more about decoys then I thought possible

Escorted through the Museum by a very knowledgeable volunteer. Never knew the difference in many carvings. Many of the decoys are wonderful works of art.

Went on a Monday so only a couple of people there. The displays were nice. We took our time reading about the artists. We watched 2 videos on the local shore life. Loved the peacefulness of it all. Also watched a video on the Ward brothers. Very fascinating men. Definitely suggest doing this.

I have attended several fund and friend-raising events here lately and it is just a beautiful space. You can socialize and amble through the exhibits of wildfowl local art which are sure to amaze you. Perfect place for receptions and it's growing to accommodate even more people. We are so lucky to have it in Salisbury

The first time before I went to the Ward I thought "Really, you have to be kidding me!". Once there it was apparent that this is truly a museum of incredible art. The craftsmanship is incredible and very unique. I quickly developed a deep appreciation for the detail that had to go into each piece. Do yourself a favor and... More

It was a rainy day at Ocean City with nothing to do but sit in a hotel room so we checked out the AAA book and drove over to Salisbury. SO GLAD we did.
