I have wanted to stop at this venue for years and finally did. It is a state park with campground and lodges, but also has the Audubon museum, center and trails. The only charge was for the museum portion. Well worth a few dollars each....More

I knew nothing of John J Audubon before this trip, what a learning experience. Unbelievable drawings of birds and wildlife! So much here from obvious drawings to the wig worn by his wife Lucy to cover her baldness.

Henderson just south of Evansville IN flourishes as a key crossroad in eastern Middle West. Unexpectedly I found this privately-supported museum in the state park of the same name. Around 1918 a local art-lover and birder Susan Towles single-handedly collected Audubon's artworks from his heirs...More
