Woodcarving at it's very best
Jul 08, 2014 by: ManicUSAVisitor from London, England
As a long time admirer and collector of woodcarving this museum is an absolute pleasure and although there a lot of decoys there also some splendid examples of other bird types. It is a case of the very best coming last as the earlier galleries concentrate mainly on decoys, and I skipped through these fairly quickly to get to the final gallery which has examples of bird carvings of the highest quality. I loved them.
nice if you like decoy's

A bit confused as to what this museum is. If you want to see ART (decoy type) of ducks, then go. The lake and park near-by is fun.
If you like wild fowl art, this is the place

It was a great place to see once. I enjoyed the artistic renditions of the water fowl. It was pricy and not a very big place.
Interesting history of bird hunting

Yes, the carved birds are beautiful and amazing, and the ground and building are beautiful too. But what amazed me is the history of how people hunted birds in various ways, using decoy or not. It really shows how far we have come.

A small museum, but a gem. It has the most extensive collection I have seen of duck decoys. Viewing them one realizes not only the tight relationship between the useful and the artistic, but also something about the waterways of the Delmarva peninsula and the lives of the people who have called that region home. The building and layout of the museum, its exquisite displays, and its highly imaginative use of space are a work of art in themselves. If you happen to be in Salisbury, MD, and have an hour or two to spare, you should put this museum on your must-do list.
