Poe, Edgar Allan Museum www.poemuseum.org

Virginia's only literary museum honors this great American Writer with the world's largest collection of Poe artifacts. The Museum was opened in 1922 in the Old Stone House, Richmond's oldest standing structure, only blocks away from the sites of Poe's first Richmond home and first place of employment. The Museum includes exhibits on Poe's life and death, the "enchanted" courtyard garden (a popular location in Richmond to hold outdoor wedding ceremonies), and the Poe Shrine. Enjoy a guided tour, or sit and sip lemonade while you read your favorite Poe short story in the garden. The Museum also has a unique gift shop with dozens of Poe related items. Call the museum to learn more about holding a wedding ceremony or reception in the historic garden. The garden is also available for photography shoots and filming.

Admission Fee: $5.00
