The House is extremely small and can only accommodate approximately 15 people inside at a time.
Each year, thousands of visitors have safely walked and driven to the Edgar Allan Poe House National Historic Landmark without any issues. There is good security in and around the House, and security cameras operate 24-hours a day inside and outside. Visitors should exercise the same precautions as they would in any city– and we feel confident you’ll discover what so many others have: that our Poppleton neighbors are proud of their affiliation to Poe; that they’re honored to live in a neighborhood that entices people from around the world; and if you ask for assistance with directions, our neighbors will happily explain how to find our parlor door.
We’ve expanded our season! Starting on Saturday, April 2, 2016, we’ll be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through the end of the year. Hours: Saturday and Sunday between 11-4pm. To give everyone enough time to explore the house before our 4pm closing, we close the front door at 3:45 and can’t admit new visitors.
YOU can help make a difference, via visits, purchases from our museum (or online) shop, and tax-deductible donations. Thank you!
