Wow, what a great day abroad the Poe Charter sail boat. Really good food all day, very nice and friendly English and French speaking crew/guides, they are lots of fun. The Atoll is so different and wonderful natural beauty. Birds, reef fish and a chance to swim with reef sharks. Thank you for a lovely day and memories of my... More

It's a nice free attraction! We went on an open house day, so some volunteers told us more about the house than others. It was fun to explore and there were free cookies as part of their Christmas celebration! We saw the Victorian singers sing Christmas carols which was enjoyable as well!

It was such a treat to visit the Poe House. It is attached to a museum next door and the tours of the museum and the Poe house are free and full of copious amounts of historical information. The Poe Josie tour guide we had was absolutely lovely, the tour was free, and we got to walk around the historic... More

We found this museum looking through points of interest in fayetteville...what an excellent find. The house was beautiful. Although it was lived in until 1988, it has been restored to it's original state. The young woman, I believe her name was Abby, who conducted the tour was informative. She gave us plenty of time to look at all the artifacts... More

What a fun piece of history tucked away right here in Fayetteville, and it's free! Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable guide who was able to share so many tidbits of information and answer all of our questions. I'm not sure that this would interest smaller children, but any kid old enough to appreciate a look back in time would... More

I have been to several outdoor plays there. Bring your own chair. It can get a bit noisy. Sometimes the traffic drowns out the actors' lines. It's a cozy place. The actors come around and say "hello" and "thank you" after the plays.

My 2 teenage boys have been interested in Edgar Allen Poe the last couple of years. They saw the museum and the 1897 Poe House and have been begging for a month to go. It totally popped their bubbles when they found out it was Edgar Allen Poe, a local Fayetteville, NC business man, not Edgar Allen Poe, the famous... More
