Virtual Poe House Tours for Educators/ School Groups/ Book Clubs
In a tiny brick house on Baltimore’s North Amity Street in 1833-1835, Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of the early stories that would make him the father of the modern short story, and create and define the modern genres of mystery, horror and science fiction. Poe House is currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 response in Maryland. Educators and Book Club leaders may schedule remote online tours of the house for students, led by a museum docent. Complete this form to request a date and time for a private online session for your group.
