Nice way to pass some time and learn . Staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and you can watch the volunteer woodcarvers. You can also learn about the history of Virginia Beach.

The Wildfowl Museum is free, so it's definitely worth paying a visit if you are on the boardwalk. It's a bit small, and might not be as interesting to someone who isn't a sportsman or wood carver, but I was able to appreciate the beautiful...More
