As locals we often don't get to many of the 'tourist' spots. But last Saturday the Audubon House participated in the Smithsonian Museum day and with the lure of free tickets, we decided to check it out.
We loved the fact that whenever you're ready, a knowledgeable guide takes you one-on-one over to the house from the gift shop, gives you a little back ground and then leaves you to explore at your own pace. He was around to answer questions but not intrusive. The house was lovely, the grounds beautiful and the art stunning. We would definitely recommend this as a diversion to our Key West visitors.
Plan to spend about an hour here...a little more if you're interested in perusing the prints and original Audubons that are for sale in the art gallery off the gift shop. They also rent the house and grounds for special events...it would be a very cool place for a wedding.
