Nestled next to Schumaker Pond in Salisbury, surrounded by wildlife in the heart of the Atlantic Flyway. The Ward Museum was named in honor of Steven and Lemuel Ward, whose vision and artistry in carving decoys pioneered the transition in the role of the decoy from a working tool to an expressive wildfowl sculpture.

The Ward Museum is a cherished part of its local community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and far beyond. Maintaining a national and international reputation for excellence, the Museum has dues-paying members in all 50 states and 10 countries. The reach of this institution reflects the wide appeal and interest in an art form that reveals the interconnections of art, nature and heritage.

  • 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.
