“Celebrating astonishing creativity”

Described as horrifying, mystifying, and full of genius, Poe’s writing has engaged readers all over the globe. The six years Poe lived in Philadelphia were his happiest and most productive. Yet Poe also struggled with bad luck, personal demons and his wife’s tuberculosis. In Poe’s humble home, reflect on the human spirit surmounting crushing obstacles, and celebrate Poe’s astonishing creativity.

The staff are more than welcoming. You have to knock once to be let in and once inside, you're bombarded by Poe everything, merchandise included. The foyer is easy to walk through and browse- there's a timeline, pictures, documents, etc. You'll be invited to watch a short documentary and then will be given a menu for a self guided tour. There's nothing in the house, just empty rooms and decaying walls. Still, it's a must see for any fan of Poe. It's free, but bring some cash if you want to take home a souvenir (kind of pricey) Plenty of photo ops too.
