About this event:
***UPDATE: Poe House will be closed on Sunday, 7/21/2019, as our A/C units are unable to overcome the extreme heat. We are sorry to miss visitors this weekend. Poe House will re-open for regular museum hours, Thursday 7/25/2019, once the Code Red has been lifted. ***
The City of Baltimore has issued a Code Red Heat Advisory for the weekend of 7/19 thru 7/21. Poe House is an historic site. We make every effort to run cooling fans and limit the number of guests in Poe House at any one time. Please be patient with staff and respect house rules and staff instructions as you wait to enter.
Due to the advisory, Poe House staff have also been advised to monitor the heat situation and, if temperatures climb beyond our ability to mitigate, to close if necessary.
