John James Audubon Center

Now Open Wednesday through Sunday


Center Hours

The John James Audubon Center is regularly open from Wednesday - Sunday, 10am-4pm.

For annual pass holders: please note that the basement craft area has been reopened. Thank you for your patience with our construction work.

Please note that in an effort to keep our staff and visitors safe, face masks are strongly recommended for everyone before entering the Visitor Center or other buildings on the property, regardless of your vaccination status. If you choose not to wear a mask, please be mindful of those around you.

Dogs are NOT allowed in the interior of the park since it is a bird sanctuary and birds see dogs as potential predators. Dogs are allowed on the paved Audubon Loop which encircles the property only!

Grounds are always open free to the public during daylight hours only. There is an admission fee for the Visitor Center and Historic House. The Historic House is only open for guided tours at 1pm (Wednesday Through Sunday). Guided tours must be signed up for and leave promptly from the Visitor Center. For private group tour information please contact the Front Desk at 610-666-5594. 

The property address is: 1201 Pawlings Road, Audubon, PA 19403.


Spring Wildlife at the John James Audubon Center - by Vicki Jauron


The mission of the John James Audubon Center is to educate and inspire people to cherish and protect the natural world, by preserving Audubon’s artistic, scientific, and historic legacy and celebrating the conservation movement he inspired while serving the mission of the National Audubon Society (NAS), “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.”

To arrange a tour of our venue or for information concerning weddings or having a special event on grounds please contact Jeffrey Miller Catering at 610-990-3411 or
