The museum/tour cost 5 dollars per adult ticket. It took about an hour.
You begin by looking at a very few articles taken from Poe's house as a child, and a giant model map of Richmond from his day. The tour guide talks about Poe's life and references various buildings on the display, noting their relevance. You are then taken to a room with brief examples of the various types of works he created. Finally, you move to a different building which is supposed to address Poe's death, and where you can watch a brief vhs video performance of "The Raven," and view artwork that appeared in some of his works.
I don't feel that this museum was worth visiting. There was no real in-depth examination of his life, or interesting information about his friends or family. Lots of "we don't really know"'s. Serious Poe fans will be sorely disappointed by the lack of artifacts from his life and the lack of information provided.
