For the Birds

Provides an interesting look at the Eastern Shore and how the water fowl has impacted the area. Great Carvings by the Ward Bros. and more. Nice way to spend the day
Birds at their Best

If you like birds, art, and/or wood carving you cannot miss this exhibit. It is truly remarkable art! They have special exhibits along with their ongoing national winner carvings. The detail and portrayal is really amazing. I guarantee you would want to have one of these pieces in your home - if you could afford it.
A Beautiful Little Gem

Located right on the river in Salisbury, MD, this museum knows exactly why it exists and reflects its mission beautifully. The exhibits are carefully displayed, with plenty of room to move around the spaces. There are a variety of typs of exhibits (paintings, sculptures, etc) and visitors will absolutely find many pieces that are appealing. The decoy exhibit is fascinating, as it includes very primitive decoys right up to the most amazing current work, including winners of the annual very prestigious international competition. The gift shop opus lovely, with a nice variety of items reasonable priced. Parking is very close and no charge. The grounds are beautiful and the facility can serve to host special events such as wedding receptions and other gatherings. Persons of all ages will enjoy this museum. Make it a multi-generational visit if possible.
Don't miss it!

Unbelievable wood carvings. Nice to see many examples of Canadian artists. Easy gallery to find, large and bright and ample parking.
Do you know a decoy when you see one?

Several times we have driven past the signs for the Waterfowl Museum, but we made time to visit this trip. And, am I glad we did. This museum is dedicated to the art of decoy carving. The displays began with very, very simple decoys and finished with the absolutely incredible carving which are being done today. The focus in on two brothers, Lem and Steve Ward who quietly took simple decoys to a great art form. The organization of the museum, the clear and easily understood captions on the displays, the videos, and overall use of space demonstrate a high level of planning and execution. The gift shop was well laid out and inviting. The person there was very helpful. If you are interesting in either nature or art you will enjoy the time you spend at the Ward Museum of Waterfowl Art
