  • Went today with my daughter and son. We had a great time. Tour guide was excellent...very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this gem in the Bronx! If you are planning a day trip to the Bronx Zoo...definitely fit this in....The tour is not long and its a small house! and its literally about a 5 minute ride from the zoo.
  • As a Poe fan, I very much enjoyed seeing the cottage. The tour guide was a phenomenally friendly person who made my trip enjoyable. As a historian, however there were a couple small details that I knew to be incorrect that were told to us.
  • A must visit for the Poe buff and if you have little ones the visiters center is a perfect place to do some arts and crafts.
  • Nice place but location takes away from it.
  • Love Poe so to be in a place he actually lived was amazing. Saw some crows but no ravens.
