The Havre de Grace Decoy Museum invites you to plan your next wedding reception, birthday or anniversary celebration, business meeting, family gathering, or other important social event in our upstairs Carvers’ Gallery. 

The Gallery has a rated capacity of 125 people, and handicapped access is provided via an elevator.  The Museum has long-established relationships with MacGregor’s Restaurant, the Bayou Restaurant, and other local caterers who are familiar with our facility.  We can also assist with arrangements for tables, chairs, and other special needs for your event. 

The Gallery displays many of the museum’s most prized decoys, including life-size figures of renowned Upper Chesapeake Bay area carvers.  The rustic environment of the Gallery is warm and inviting, and our world-renowned collection of decoys is repeated in the colorful stained glass art that surrounds the room. 

Weather permitting, the Gallery is an indoor-outdoor space with french doors opening onto our new partially-covered deck and a truly spectacular view across the Susquehanna Flats to the Eastern Shore.  “The Flats” is the area at the Museum’s doorstep where the river becomes the Bay and where waterfowl migrating down the Atlantic Flyway once over wintered in staggering numbers thus giving Havre de Grace its unofficial title: “The Decoy Capital of the World”.

There is much to capture the eye and the imagination as your guests relax and enjoy your hospitality and ours here at the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum.  Come see for yourself!  It will make your next affair one that all will remember.
