|About these ratings|
Located in Old Town a block away from Duval Street stands the 1840s Audubon House and Tropical Gardens. The house was built by Captain John Geiger but is 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. You'll also see antique furniture from the 1800s in the house.
Explore the house's decor and then head outside to the lush and colorful garden, which includes herbs, orchids and other tropical plants. The small admission fee also includes a self-guided audio tour.
