Trip Advisor The original "Duck Dynasty"
Dec 19, 2014 by: kp3218 from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
From hunters to people with interest in folk art, the Havre de Grace decoy museum is a must see. It gives a wonderful history lesson and a view into the past that has all but been forgotten. It gives you a new appreciation for the "old way" of doing things and seeing the effort that is put into these works of art. I would highly recommended it to anyone in the are or passing through!

I had planned on going to Balitmore for a day, but was tired of visiting big cities. I ended up going to Havre de Grace and found the Decoy Museum. I had no idea what it was but checked it out. Once I stepped into the museum, I understood what decot meant :) Anyways, I liked the museum and enjoyed reading the history of how important duck hunting was to the area. I also liked the many ducks painted in the upstairs gallery. The details were amazing

I have to admit I was a little hesitant to spend $6 to visit a decoy museum as I'm not a hunter nor am I into working with wood or painting. Boy was I surprised at this little gem! The displays are wonderfully detailed and very interesting. The wax figures were amazing, and their collection of carved birds were amazing. Do yourself a favor and visit this place.

Trip Advisor This is Duck Decoy Mecca

A well-organized small museum on the waterfront of Havre de Grace. The exhibits are well organized following the timeline of decoy history. Videos show decoy making technics and narration by the artists. A second floor has cabinets of decoys displayed with lifelike wax figures of the carvers. This is truly a museum where you can learn a whole lot about decoys, whether you are a newbie or an aficionado. A cute gift shop has unique, well-priced items for purchase. Well worth a visit any day of the year.
