This is a great place to visit. The Cape Fear Museum, 1897 Poe House and Arsenal Park are beside each other. The museum is small. It takes about an hour to tour. Then, visitors can take a 45 minute guided tour of the Poe House. After the tour, be sure to walk over to Arsenal Park. It is all very... 更多

We were disappointed after making the boring walk through industrial downtown to find that we couldn't just do a self guided walk through the house. Im sure they state that somewhere on the website, but I never saw it when I was doing my research. So we walked around the tiny museum and eavesdropped on the two volunteer,s conversation. lesson... 更多

Great museum telling the history of North Carolina as well as a tour of the Poe House. The museum has some hands-on exhibits for children. The tour was extremely informative and our guide was highly knowledgeable. We took two children ages 8 and 10 and were amazed at how much information they retained. Recommend it highly! They also have a... 更多
The reason I said walk among history you actually get to walk in the house and around the furniture. No ropes no bars. You can see upstairs and downstairs. Our guide Meghan, was awesome. She was articulate, funny and informative. We loved it so much. We had a baby on the tour who was getting quite miserable. She entertained the... 更多
The museum was fascinating with replicas and artifacts. The design was perfect to keep it interesting and be accurate. I loved the tour of the house. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer our endless questions. Thank you for such a great experience!
We were there for opening time, and took a tour offered by the museum right next door. Our local friend, enjoyed speaking with the gardening people preparing the house gardens for the fall. It has wonderful history and feel about it. You have to see this house, and see how the people lived 120 years ago.
The 1897 Poe House has been well restored and includes a large number of the original furnishings and accouterments. The architecture is superb and the wood work finely crafted. Well worth the stop when visiting Fayetteville, especially for the history buff.
You sign in at the museum next door, which is also free. I wasn't aware of the important history Fayetteville is filled with until we went here. The tour guide was friendly and had a lot of knowledge. The house was beautiful and decorated very nice. They do more activities at the Poe house than just tours. Overall, the tour... 更多
Well, if you're an Edgar Allen Poe (writer) fan, you'll be disappointed, This Poe, same name, had nothing to do with the other, famous one. So skip it if that's your reason for visiting. That said, the house is very nice. So is the - free - museum next door, especially the second floor.
