  • My daughter and I are fans of Poe so when we were in Philly for a few days we walked there after visiting the Comcast Building. Phew! Long walk through some not so great areas. The outside of the hous...  more »

  • The historic site is open every unti 5pm. Im surprised that this place is not fully advertised. We visited his tomb in Batimore, Im just so glad that I made it today to see where he lived.

  • Very knowledgeable staff. Neat park (it's run by the National Park Service) in the middle of the city. Very informative. Guided tour took about 30 minutes, plus 8 minute video plus some wondering ... we were there about an hour.
  • It was really cool seeing where Poe lived and being able to feel the aura of that place. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and let you roam through the house at will.
  • We visited the Edgar Allan Poe house at the request of our 15 year old. The house turned out to be a great little museum. There was a short movie in the beginning, an informative timeline of Poe's career, and we were free to roam the house. The best was the creepy basement. Use your imagination. This house is free to enter and the rangers are very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • It was a lot of fun here. As a lover of Edgar Allan Poe, it's a must see place. The rangers were all friendly and nice to talk to. I had a great time, and I went with my family. Good place for pictures, don't miss the Raven statue outside.
  • It will will be better if it have a similar firntuer instead of the photos on the wall, the entrance is perfect
