The Audubon House offers a relaxing and educational environment for families and visitors of all ages. Enjoy the art gallery, tropical gardens, gift shop, and much more when you visit The Audubon House.  Just one block from the historic Audubon House & Tropical Gardens, The Westin Key West Resort & Marina is the perfect location for your Key West stay.

The house was saved by the Mitchell Wolfson Family Foundation, a nonprofit educational institution, after being slated for demolition in 1958. This was the first restoration project in Key West, and is still considered a gem on the island. Explore local history and folklore when you visit the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens.  The gardens offer a lush one-acre view of tropical foliage, perfect for hosting outdoor events. Inside the house you will enjoy viewing the works of John James Audubon, world renown naturalist, with 28 first edition Audubon works. Our newest exhibit is a historical representation of an 1850's out door kitchen, furnished with antiques of the period. Next to the kitchen is an 1850's medicinal and herbal garden.

Your tour guide will give you an introduction to the property and its history, then you can roam the house and gardens at your leisure.  Be sure to stop at the Koyi fish pond and the 1850's medicinal/herbal garden.  This is the finest tropical garden in the Florida Keys. Feel free to linger as long as you like.

The House and Gardens can also be rented for weddings, luncheons, dinners, receptions, and other special events, during or after hours. Make your event memorable at this tropical Key West setting.
