Entering this house is stepping back in time. A wonderful place staged with period furniture. The garden was lovely and would make a great place for a small wedding. Enjoyed the gift shop where you can purchase an Audubon print for yourself.More

I love old houses, furniture, history....so I enjoyed this. There is about an 8 minute verbal history and then you can explore the 3 stories by yourself. The prints were the most amazing part. I would go again just for that!!

We enjoyed this house and its gardens. The docent was very informative. It exhibits several of Audubon's original prints that he did while living in Key West. The garden was restful and pleasant.More

This house is near everything but was not crowded. There is one room when there are paintings of every bird found in Key West. Outside , there is a small garden area with some colorful flowers. It is worth visiting since it is near everything.

So interesting. Knowledge about James J. Audubon previously unknown. The house tour and gardens are worth the time and price of admission. Comparable to the Hemmingway House tour - do both.More
