Obscura Day 2016: The Edgar Allan Poe Museum

A behind-the-scenes tour of the museum's hidden curiosities.

Richmond was the on and off home of Edgar Allan Poe throughout his life, and today the city's oldest building houses the world's largest collection of Poe artifacts, manuscripts, correspondence, and curiosities. Curator Chris Semtner will give guests a behind-the-scenes tour of some of the hidden curiosities in the museum's special collections, including items that aren't on display to the public. Among the highlights will be Poe's autobiography, Poe family oddities, and, perhaps most strangely of all, Poe hair art. 

Saturday, April 16; 11:00am - noon.
Ticket Cost: $5

All Sales are Final.
