“Will go Back”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Been there many times and enjoyed every one. Warm and comfortable with a wonderful and one of the best carving displays I have seen. Watching the carvers is an education. Definitely will continue to support the museum and I hope you will to.

“Enjoyable, but not spectacular”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a nice stop if you're on the beach and looking for something a little different. This and the Old Coast Guard Station are some of the only non-beach-oriented venues that you can visit. There is good information here, and maybe it can get you started on Geocaching as there is a fun and easy geocache hidden on this property. The venue owners are friendly (and obviously support geocaching!) so it's a nice stop. They'll chat if you have questions. Overall, a fun little stop if you're looking for something different. Teens might get bored :)

“A Birder's Must”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband and I spent about two hours looking at the duck decoys, the paintings and all the merchandise for sale. We encourage everyone to support the museum. We didn't get to see them but on occasion they have decoy makers working on site. If you have an affinity for ducks as my husband does, you really must check out the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum. It's on 12th street.

“Like Carvings?”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you are into duck hunting and carvings this is a wonderful place to go. We met three gentlemen in the boat shed who were carving.

The museum is a wonderful small museum with some great history. I would recommend it.
