  • I'm a fan of Poe. It's a free self guided tour but you learn a lot about his life and lifestyle. I thought the way you tour the home was well laid out. I would have loved to leave a donation but didn'...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Great tour and great history. A must for Poe lovers or anyone interested in American literature.
  • There was no one here when we in mid Friday. It was amazing. I love Poe so I loved exploring it on my own. Just being there is enough. Definitely go!
  • It's a simple layout of Edgar Allan Poe's house. It shows the original walls, wood floor and cellar where Edgar wrote some of his famous stories. They have some interesting documents that tell u some secrets of Edgar. Also a nice set out for reading room according from Edgar's book. Watch the short film of Edgar, that'll give u the general idea of this place. Talk to the staffs there! Steve and Patricia were so helpful with tons of info to share with u!! Thanks so much for them, I had so much fun there!
