Small, but fun day trip. Very informative center, and thorough explanations of art work. The museum is very focused on the bird hunting culture of Delmarva. The small trail had great scenery, a good way to spend an afternoon.
The museum was interesting and enjoyed it. Disappointed in the lady at the counter. She was a bit scattered explaining everything they had in the museum as there were other venues going on that day. We paid to see the Andy Warhol exhibit, which was very disappointing. We thought it would be better known pieces, but turned out to be random shots my children could have produced.
