Along the banks of the Ohio River just north of Henderson, KY, John James Audubon State Park houses the world's largest collection of Audubon artifacts and offers exhibits on the artist's life. Let the art of America’s premier 19th-century naturalist accent your next group function. The meeting room, located in the lower level of the John James Audubon Museum and Nature Center also serves as a regional art gallery. A guided tour of the Museum and team-building activities on the Challenge Course are the perfect complements to your business event.
