This is a great museum for the uneducated

Salisbury's showpiece is a whittler's paradise! With two colleges nearby, the museum could have taken on the ecological challenges face by the Delmarva peninsula. Luckily, there's nothing to learn here, so it won't be trouble for the dim witted or the chicken industry.

I lived down the street from this museum for several years. I have been there several times and even attended a wedding in the lobby. I can't even begin to describe how amazing the carvings are in this museum. There are some carvings that look so real that you would not be able to tell the difference between the actual bird and the carving if they were side by side. Every single feather is carved in detail. Simply amazing. Besides the world class carvings, there is a fantastic amount of history to learn here. The exhibits on duck hunting and carving are fantastic. Any hunter would love a visit to this museum. I highly recommend it to anyone who visits the Salisbury area. I believe it is the only must see attraction in Salisbury. This is a world class museum.
Woodcarving at it's very best

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.
