“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

Group Virtual Tours

Live Guided Virtual Tours of Poe House

Your group can join us for a live virtual tour of the historic Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, led by a real museum docent.

In addition to tours for educators and students, we welcome other group leaders (clubs, senior groups, private groups) to book virtual tours. Use this form ONLY if you wish to book a private tour for a group or class. Participants log in and follow along with a LIVE docent as we “walk through” the historic Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, finishing with a Q&A session. Virtual Tours are led online via the Zoom conferencing platform.

Each virtual session is led by a live guide who will share the history of Edgar Allan Poe’s life in Baltimore, explore the poet’s mysterious death in the city in 1849, and learn about the poems and short stories Poe wrote while residing at Poe House. Each live session has limited seats to encourage interactive discussion and personalize the session for the group.

Sessions are led online via the Zoom conferencing platform, led by a live museum docent. All proceeds benefit the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, to help keep Poe’s chamber door open to visitors.

LIMITED SESSIONS AVAILABLE. We will add tours and tour times as demand grows, so please check back for updates. At this time transcription and/or sign-language services are not available. Tours are conducted in English.

Please note: student groups and book club leaders may also sign up for their own private sessions, subject to verification.
