We stopped here because we love his writing but learned so much from this visit, I think we have to go back. They have a small but truly amazing museum devoted to his life and writing that if you visit the area, plan a visit. Use the app they provide for your phone to guide you as you move from room to room. It was a tremendous visit

We enjoyed it. It’s really worth. Stop especially if you love Poe’s work. The gift shop was excellent and the staff was help and friendly. Edgar the Cat was extremely welcoming.

As an American Lit teacher I knew the story of Poe and his family, however it was nice to see pictures of the various family members. The original manuscripts were fascinating as were all the medical theories on the reason for Poe's death. There is aparking lot although we did not know that and had parked on the street several blocks away. The whold museum can be seen in about an hour. Be sure to look for the black cats that are residents in the courtyard.

FYI: Covid-related timed entry into the museum is no longer required!
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum. Spread throughout several buildings, you get a summary of this well-known author's difficult life.
Reasonable entry fee. Not a lot of walking but there are stairs to climb if you're interested in going to the second floor of any of the buildings.

We loved the Poe Museum. It can be done in under an hour, but we learned so much about his life in a fun way.
