This was such an interesting place to visit. We came around Halloween time so we got to see a performance of The Tell Tale Heart by a talented actor. The house is small but it was Edgar's house. He's a small guy. A great piece of history. Smack dab in the middle of the ghetto, however. Though the people around there were helpful in giving us directions to the place.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum shows its age a bit. It can't help but be fascinating to anyone familiar with Poe's life and works, but its displays fall a bit flat for a casual visitor. Poe is deservedly one of Baltimore's treasures, and it may be time for his museum to be updated so more visitors can appreciate his impact.

New Exhibits Although this review by Harish is 5 years old I would like to point out that we have installed new exhibits and please keep in mind the house was built in 1830. It is the smallest historic house museum in Baltimore. Space is very limited but we try to update as much as the space permits. Thank you for your review.

My friend's and English teacher, so we HAD to go here ! They are also well over 6 feet tall. Poe house is excellently preserved, but TINY ! Any one over 5'4 be prepared to duck a lot. It's a self guided tour, with videos and Poe's Loft, is so small it's incredible.

In the entry room, they sell souvenirs and parchments in Poe's own handwriting. It's a must see for Poe fans, but call ahead or check their internet site to make sure they are going to be open !

Contact Information You can call 410-396-7932 and press #2 for current Poe House hours. We try to update as soon as we know if the museum won't be open on a particular day due to repairs or other reason. We don't update our website anymore. The voice mail is much more immediate.

For all you fans of the creepy tails from Mr. Poe, it is worth the visit to his house. For increasingly creepiness they have artifacts such as a lock of his hair, and it is not too far from his grave at the corner of Univ. Of Md. Law school.
