Quick tour if pressed with time. Cant take pictures inside.
This place was so quaint and interesting. You should go just to find the secret skeletons. ;) It was a nice break from driving on the way to D.C. Edgar and Pluto are so sweet and friendly.
It's a neat little museum (it is a museum about him, NOT his actual house). There is an optional audio tour that you can pull up on your phone, so bring headphones if that might interest you. Photos are not allowed, which is a bit of a bummer. It was very educational, and didn't rely on the assumption that we already knew about him or his works
Very cool museum. Lots of artifacts and memorabilia. The husband and I aren't huge literary nerds, but we very much enjoyed this place.
