We stopped by for a few minutes while on the board walk. Not a lot to see, a few displays, some decoys and a fellow carving a new decoy. I would suggest making a special trip to see it, but OK if you're walking by.

But the trinkets can be pricey. There was little 'museum' here, mostly things for sale. Some duck decoys and some antique rifles were displayed. Walk the beach instead.

It was interesting to see the different stages of decoys and the history behind them. Loved listening to the decoy maker tell of his experiences.

This is a great little free (donations accepted) museum. We learned a ton about the local waterfowl and hunting history.
