“World renowned carvers works and art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Not a duck carving fan, so I was blown away at the carved birds of all types here that looked so real you expected them to fly away. World class carvers compete to show in this beautiful museum of art that overlooks a beautiful body of water. Paintings of birds and natural vistas are also displayed. The gift shop is remarkable.

“Salisbury's secret?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

I wish more people knew about this treasure. A wonderful museum about waterfowl, the Ward Brothers and the rotating exhibits provide reason to keep going back and see what's on display. HIGHLY recommend for locals and visitors.

“Impressive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

This is not to be missed when visiting Salisbury - the carvings are so lifelike. This is not the type of place to visit often, but for sure once, and likely once a year and you will be very interested. Hard to believe the contents are art and not real waterfowl. Neat gift shop too.

“Give it a Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

If you are at all into wildfowl or nature, the Ward Museum is a "must see." Not too much for kids there, however, but well annotated and good diversity of exhibits for adult birders to enjoy. Well stocked gift shop.
