“I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow.” — Edgar Allan Poe

POE HOUSE TEMPORARILY CLOSED, COVID-19 Response (as of 4/2/2020)

To preserve public safety in response to COVID-19 (aka Corona Virus), and by order of the State of Maryland, The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum mirrors State and City Government protocols. To that end, Poe House is CLOSED to visitors for the month of April.

Poe Baltimore is offering free remote tours via web to students and homeschool groups, as well as book clubs. Please click here for more details and to reserve a tour time.

We ask for your patience during this time. We will update the website and social media if we learn that circumstances change. Please check PoeBaltimore.org before visiting Poe House.

We continue to monitor www.cdc.gov, www.maryland.gov, and baltimorecity.gov for guidance. Poe Baltimore programming work continues; there are no other schedule changes or canceled events at this time. Thank you for supporting Poe Baltimore/ The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum.
