“From childhood's hour I have not been. As others were, I have not seen. As others saw, I could not awaken. My heart to joy at the same tone. And all I loved, I loved alone.” — Edgar Allan Poe

The Poe App

Enjoy our new mobile app, presented by Poe Baltimore, for visitors to the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum. We have created this app to help orient visitors to the museum offerings, and to share the various “Poe Places” in Baltimore important to Edgar’s history. Special exhibits and tours may also be added from time to time, so please check back often for new content. We hope you use the program to learn about Poe’s legacy in Baltimore.

Note: this is a new application launched in the Spring of 2021 and the content continues to evolve. Please contact us if you have suggestions–we’d love to hear from you!

Cell phone tour is also available for $5 in the gift shop or when you purchase tickets. No Internet or data required. Call with any phone and use touch-tones to select and listen to information about each of the stops outlined in this brochure. Hang up and dial again as many times as you wish; your number is stored by the system* and will return you to the next stop in the tour. Purchase the accompanying brochure at Poe House or when you book tickets.
