  • Well thought out presentation, without making you feel like you are on a track. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. I felt engaged by my experience and gained a new appreciation for Poe. Certainly glad we took the time to look in.
  • This was a neat, little museum. There's not a lot to see, but there's a few buildings to explore and you get enough for the $7-10 admission. The staff is friendly and the buildings and grounds are well-maintained. It's worth a quick visit for sure if you're in the neighborhood or like history...or black cats wandering around.
  • An awesome experience that enables you to see much of his history as well as see some of the architecture prevalent at the time. I only wish it detailed more of why he did things and what motivated him although that may simply not be known. The tour will take you a few hours at most but the artwork strewn about may add time if you enjoy it.
  • Very enjoyable visit. Well worth the stop and cost. Rich with history and stone house was amazing.
  • If you are a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, this is a "must see". Lots of very interesting exhibits and information. Spent a very enjoyable afternoon here with my granddaughter.
