Plan a visit to John James Audubon State Park in Henderson, KY, which houses the world's largest collection of Audubon artifacts and offers exhibits on the artist's life. At the park, you can also explore the woods where Audubon studied his bird subjects from 1810-1819.
The museum interprets Audubon’s life through his art and personal memorabilia, framed within a timeline of world events. The Nature Center comprises three areas: a wildlife Observation Room; the Discovery Center with hands-on exhibits; and the Learning Center, where the park naturalist and art educator conduct environmental and art programs. And a giant bird’s nest is the centerpiece of the Discovery Center, with hands-on exhibits and educational programs.Be sure to stop by the gift shop for your own Audubon bird print, postcards or other memorabilia. Park hours are March - November, 10 AM-5 PM daily and December - February, 8 AM - 4:30 PM Wednesday - Sunday.
