It’s the day after Christmas 2015. It was my second visit to the Poe Museum. They’ve moved some of the stuff around. The bed Poe slept in – more like a cot – is present in the first room you enter – tiny with a huge fireplace. Strange proportions. Also in this first room is a piano that belonged to somebody – his wife? I’m not sure about Poe’s life very much but the piano has a placard near it you can read, it tells a bit of the history of the piano – it was given as payment to a Dr. that somebody owed money to then was donated back several generations later back to the Poe museum. Many things here have been transplanted from places Poe lived including an entire staircase from his childhood residence.
They also set up a "Cask of Amontillado" exhibit where you can have your picture taken next to the guy that gets chained to the wall. If you haven't read that story it is one of Poe's good ones. Well done.
