Last week I got a chance to visit the Museum of Florida History in downtown Tallahassee and view the John James Audubon Exhibit. Featured in the exhibit are rare Audubon works of art and artifacts, including original oil paintings, letters, photographs, personal items and more than sixty original hand-colored engravings from The Birds of America, selected from the collection and archives of the John James Audubon Museum. For the next few days I will show some pictures from my visit. The Museum of Florida History is located in the R.A. Gray Building just west of the Florida Capitol and in this picture you can see the front entrance with part of the Capitol building reflected in the lower left window.
