The Audubon House is a fine example of what a 19th century house looked like. Although the house was not built for him, it was named after the famous ornithologist John James Audubon when he stopped over at the house during his tour of studying birds in Florida. The Audubon House was the first house that underwent a full-scale preservation and gave way to a preservation movement in Key West. The house is furnished with all the authentic household decor of that time. Once you’re done touring the house, take a stroll through the finest tropical gardens in the state and spot some exquisite flowers.

Beautiful home and gardens. Interesting collection of period items. Some, like a vacuum and roller skates I don't recall seeing anywhere else. Hint- they are on the third floor. The shop is also very nice with a wide variety of offerings.
We enjoyed the tour of the house that John James Audubon did not live in! It was interesting to see how they lived in the 1800s with no kitchen or bath in the house. The house had plenty of information about it's residents and of course plenty of art done by Mr. Audubon. Worth the visit.
This should be named the Geiger house as Audubon never stayed here. That being said a very well kept historical property that does have a lot of information on Audubon when he was in Key West. It also has some original prints from the first editions of his books and drawings. Admission was 13.00 with discount (make sure to say plant a tree, go to website for more info). Plan to spend two or so hours here going through property and three story house. If you like old style architecture you will enjoy. Everything from carpet on floors to wallpaper, paint, and decorations is period correct.
Had our wedding reception here, beautiful at anytime of day
Definitely worth a visit if you love birds and local history. The tour guide was amazing and extremely helpful and the guy in the gift shop was a huge source of knowledge for the area. Birds are great, please give this place all your money (or, you know, just 14 bucks) and check out the amazing birds and prints.
