Poe Baltimore, Inc. has announced that the Edgar Allan Poe House will reopen on weekends, beginning May 24.

The self-guided tour of the house includes exhibits on Poe’s foster parents, his life and death in Baltimore, and poems and short stories written in Baltimore. It also features significant artifacts including Poe’s chair, lap desk and telescope.

The Poe House, a National Landmark, located at 203 North Amity Street in Baltimore, will be open Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., May 24 through December 28, 2014. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors (65+), active military with ID and students (ages 13-21) with ID. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available at the door or in advance online, here.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore is one of the best preserved of the three existing domiciles where Poe lived (Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore), retaining much of its original woodwork, floors, plaster walls and hardware. Poe lived in the house from 1833 to 1835.

    Is there any way at all we could get in to see it on another day?? We’re planning a trip to Baltimore on a Monday, and seeing the Poe house was one of the reasons we were going..

    • Poe Baltimore says:

      Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to accommodate special visits for individuals. Hopefully you will return in the future, as we are aiming to expand our hours. Please accept our apologies, though do peruse the other venues throughout the city that are listed in our website.

    • Poe Baltimore says:

      As mentioned elsewhere, we’re hoping to be open beyond every Saturday and Sunday (11-4pm) though at this time, we cannot manage the cost of any extra days in the week. Hopefully, we’ll add more days in 2015.
      Please help us meet our goal of remaining open Wednesday to Sundays by spreading the word that we’re open, and (if you can) by:
      “pop, pop, popping open your purse and checkbook at the end of 20-ten-and four.”

    Where did Poe live at the time of his death in 1849?

  7. Gail says:

    Our homeschool book club will be reading Poe’s works in November. Will the Poe House be open on Saturday, Nov. 22? It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving and we don’t want to make plans to come that week if it’s not going to be open. Thanks!

    • Poe Baltimore says:

      We will ALL be giving thanks to Poe, so YES, we will be open, sated, and welcoming visitors to (thankfully) celebrate our beloved Edgar Allan Poe both the weekend BEFORE and AFTER Thanksgiving. Can’t wait to meet you when you come tap, tap, tapping at our chamber door!

  8. Amanda says:

    Is the poe house open on December 27, 2014? I wanted to purchase tickets in advance but when clicking do not see any listed. It seems unclear whether they are open until the 28th of December like this page says or until end of November like another page says. Thanks!

    • Poe Baltimore says:

      Yes Amanda,

      We’re open the final Saturday and Sunday of December 11-4pm (though be sure to come before 3:45pm since we don’t let visitors enter after that time.) Feel free to simply arrive at the house and purchase your ticket there. We accept credit cards, and so far this month, there has seldom been a wait. Looking forward to seeing you then!

    • Poe Baltimore says:

      As mentioned, we’ll hope to see you at the house. Usually there’s no line, and you can easily pay for your admission with credit cards at the house. December 27 and 28 are our last visiting days until spring, and we are open 11-4 (though close the door at 3:45 to allow enough time to see the house before it closes at 4pm.) Hope to see you this Saturday!
