  • I may be biased - my father and brother built the museum building. The museum is based on the work of Madison Mitchell, a carver of working waterfowl decoys - but also includes the work of many other ...  more »
  • I happened upon this local museum, and it was well worth the trip. It was interesting to learn about the history of decoy carving in the region.  more »
  • This really is DECOY heaven!!! We happened to be there when a carver was in the museum. It was fun to talk to him. He explained a lot of things to us. Nice little gift shop when you are finished.  more »

  • This place was far superior to what I had hoped for. I love the whole folk art aspect of decoys and this concentrated on that. The lineage of the great carvers. We had seen the work of some local carvers in Chincoteague last year and it brought back all of the fond memories of my embarkation on the journey of the lore. From the early American Native reed decoys through to the current carvers still alive locally, you will find your fill. The layout of the exhibits is itself such a work of art. It is nice to see a museum so well thought out and designed. The staff members were very helpful and friendly. The photographs and the recordings of the local population of carvers is just plain refreshing. The older I get, the more I realize that any good understanding of art comes from understanding artists. This place gets it. You should really stop and see these exquisite forms of folk-art if you are in Havre De Grace. This activity is cheap, too.
  • Probably one of the best tourist traps I've ever been to. Inexpensive and interesting, if you're in the area it's worth it to drop in.
  • A very enjoyable experience and you'll a lot about the making of Decoys and the Area around the Susquehanna River for water Fowl Hunting.
  • Exceeded my expectations. Well done displays, beautiful decoys, shop, etc. Super staff.
  • Wonderful museum preserving the history of waterfowling on the Upper Chesapeake Bay.
