The Decoy Museum is a public museum organized and operated to collect, document, preserve, and interpret waterfowl decoys as a unique form of folk art that is a distinctive element in the cultural landscape of this region - the Lower Susquehanna River and the Upper Chesapeake Bay. The Museum will engage and educate visitors with exceptional exhibits that describe the centuries-old history of waterfowling as well as the interplay among this region, its people, the environment, and the folk art of decoy making. By so doing, the Museum will preserve knowledge of these cultural traditions, encourage comprehensive understanding of the history of decoy folk art, and transmit this rich heritage to future generations.
Located on the banks of the historic Susquehanna Flats, the Museum houses a spectacular collection of working and decorative decoys, boats, firearms, tools and other items. The museum is open seven days a week, year round (Monday thru Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Sundays 12 to 4 p.m.). In addition to exhibits, the Museum provides educational programming to groups of all ages and hosts several fundraising events throughout the year.
