  • Let me start this by stating, I LOVE EDGAR ALLAN POE. If Edgar Allan Poe were running a race, I'd be a the finish line with my big glittery GO EDGAR ALLAN POE sign and probably even a matching t-shirt. I wrote my college thesis on Poe, I've read countless stories, and have always been an admirer. So with that said, here are my thoughts on The Poe Museum: It was a little smaller than I thought (or maybe than I had hoped for) but the person I went with couldn't believe that I expected them to have any more stuff than they did. The things that they did have were really cool though (vest, socks, desk, chair, bed, etc) The buildings were pretty cool - old with lots of charm. The courtyard was definitely a huge selling point, it was absolutely gorgeous and I can see why The Poe Museum is a popular wedding spot.
  • Incredibly gratifying trip to the Poe Museum this afternoon. This place isn't huge, but it packs a punch, and completing a guided tour will make you feel like a Poe expert -- cheers to our wonderful guide, Chris, who was supremely knowledgable and engaging. My group and I agreed that we walked away from the museum better informed about Poe, more appreciative of his work, and reflective about how his work fits into our country's literary history. What more could you want out of a museum? Can't recommend this place enough for a must-do Richmond attraction!
