Poe Baltimore presents an interactive art installation at the Laurel Museum, where Poe's body and casket will lie in state in a re-enactment of the dark and somber day the poet was laid to rest.  Learn of the  mysterious circumstances of Poe's death in Baltimore in 1849 and how the  very clothes in which he was found are a tantalizing clue to the mystery of his final days. Admission to the museum is FREE. Donations appreciated and benefit the Laurel Historical Society and The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum in Baltimore

NOTE: Death and funeral imagery (including body in an open casket), may not be suitable for young children. Viewer discretion advised.
