Attraction details
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Staying at Va. Beach this weekend we visited this museum which is absolutely free and very educational and interactive. The museum opens at 10 am and the manager and one of the wood carvers were both very nice and personable. Its a great place to view some of the history around hunting and wild fowl hunting. I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in hunting game birds, duck hunting especially, and just being outdoors in general. Great little souvenir shop with a little bit of everything from handmade crafts to scarfs. Anyone who likes to hunt, fish, or enjoy a little history lesson this is a great spot.

There's nothing in here. It's a gift shop and a carving studio... I don't really know why they call it a museum! it's not even really a hunting club shack. The only thing to see in it are the carved birds for decoys used in hunting.... and they want you to buy those. So...yeah, if you like wood carvings, it's not bad. Just... the name is misleading... there's really nothing in there. But it is free...so if you need a short break from the sun, here you are. Oh. No bathrooms.

Very interesting to see the new & antique decoys and carvings. Don't miss the upstairs with old photos and memorabilia from Virgina Beach of years gone by. Small gift shop. Worth a look.

Stopped by here for a quick visit. The guys working were friendly and seemed always down for a conversation (one was engaged in an interesting conversation with a fellow museum goer while I was there).

I loved the gift shop. Admission is free, why not stop by?

The location is right in the heart of the Virginia Beach resort area and is free. Learn how decoys are carved and see some really good examples.
