I've been here a few times on visits to Philadelphia, and I've always enjoyed myself. As a die-hard Poe fan, I got a real kick out of this place. They like to put on mystery tours with a Poe flair - call ahead to find out about them. When we were wandering around in one of the rooms, we found a fake heart under the floorboards. Now this is a sense of humor I can really appreciate! They probably use it on the mystery tours. There was also an informative movie, and the guides were really knowledgeable. The gift shop was well worth it, too, as I found a lot of good books on Poe.
