About these ratings

Whether you're interested in colonial furniture, period architecture, tropical greenery or naturalist John James Audubon, you'll find a host of curiosities at the Audubon House &Tropical Gardens. Located in Old Town a block away from Duval Street, the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens dates back to the 1840s. The house was built by Captain John Huling Geiger, but it's named after well-known ornithologist John James Audubon, who supposedly spent some time in the house and sketched many birds. Twenty-eight of his works can be found in the house. While you're here, take a look at the house's decor and then head outside to the lush and colorful garden, which includes herbs, orchids and other tropical plants. For some, the garden was their favorite part of the house, noting that the vibrantly colored flowers make for prime photography subjects.

When you walk into the house, you'll be greeted by a staff member who will offer a brief introduction. From there, you can embark on your own self-guided tour. The Audubon House is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults costs $12; students (of any age) pay $7.50; tickets for kids ages 6 to 12 cost $5; children younger than 6 get in for free. You can get $1 knocked off the price of adult admission by mentioning the coupon on the house's website
