  • Very small museum... you can see it all in 10-15 minutes. But very cool to see a preserved house of Poe's from his time in Baltimore and learn a bit about the time he spent in this city. Not too far from downtown, it is worth stopping in if you have the time.
  • Cool little piece of American history. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable except for when my wife asked how far from the house was Poe found unconscious lol. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in the area.
