Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art - Salisbury, MD
Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art
Photo Tour   
The Ward Museum holds one of the most comprehensive collections of wildfowl carving in the world. Growing from the simple practice of creating decoys to attract the Chesapeake Bay's heavy concentrations of migrating ducks and geese, wildfowl carving has evolved into a fine art form. The Ward Museum tells the story of the connections between the natural environment, hunting and art and displays some of the finest historical and modern examples of wildfowl carving. Named for brothers Lem and Steve Ward of Crisfield, MD, whose skill and vision elevated decoy carving to fine art, the Museum also works to promote, preserve and perpetuate wildfowl art nationally.
Hours: Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from noon to 5 pm.
