The Audubon House & Tropical Gardens, located in Key West, Florida, It’s a non-profit museum and gallery dedicated to the history of Key West. It also owns 28 art works produced by renowned ornithologist John James Audubon.
He visited the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas in 1832 where he discovered 18
new birds for his Birds of America folio. It is believed that many of the drawings of these sightings were conceived in the Audubon House garden.
The Audubon House Gallery features a unique collection of 19th century original Audubon art. In addition, a lush one-acre (4,000 m2) garden offers a fantastic array of orchids, bromeliads and other tropical foliage, an herb garden and a mid-19th century nursery.
