Poe Museum - Review

Apart from having a politically rich history, Richmond was also the hometown of one America’s most celebrated and renowned writer (posthumously as it might be), Edgar Allan Poe. The oldest building in Richmond has been turned into a museum, dedicated to one of the best authors linked to the Romantic Movement. The building surrounding the Old Stone House were added later to amass and display all of Poe’s Memorabilia in one place. The Edgar Allan Poe Museum is a beautiful tribute to the author and any literature buff worth their salt must definitely visit.

Poe Museum, Richmond Reviews

Google+
  • Very accessible and interesting for adults and grade school children who like to read. It's not very big, but had some really nice historical relevance to the city of Richmond. Although, it is not a Poe residence, it really feels appropriate for the purpose, especially since he spent a significant amount of his life in Richmond. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You can easily complete the entire tour within an hour, and spend extra time reading in the library, and enjoying the courtyard.

  • Small but interesting museum, staff was knowledgeable and answered all questions Poe. Self guided tour was short, if you ready everything it’s a little over an hour but don’t let that deter you... the museum has a lot of useful information and the largest collection of Poe owned artifacts. The gift shop has really interesting prints, bags, cups, books and other trinkets. Do yourself a favor and enjoy one of the oldest standing buildings in Richmond!

  • Very fun experience. The museum has managed to cobble together quite a collection of odds and ends from Poe's life, such as his childhood bed, despite the home he lived in as a child having been destroyed many years ago. You could breeze through in half an hour, or you could stay much longer enjoying Poe's works in the reading room. I loved the live reading of The Raven in the enchanted garden. Very fun, creepy little place, definitely worth a visit.

  • Self guided tour. I'm sure they have events to attend so check their website. Mine was a spur of the moment trip. Was not disappointed. Interesting displays. Garden area was beautiful. Don't forget to bring something to offer the shrine! Very quiet atmosphere when I was there.

  • Stopped on the way down to GA. Was very impressed with everything the museum had and how much time and research went into all the exhibits. You can tell that the operators truly appreciate Poe as a person and his works. One of the highlights of my trip and a must see for anyone who is a fan.
