Richmond's Poe Museum Isn't Your Typical History Museum
S1 E2 - 4m 9s
Lauren and Laurita pay a visit to the Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, where they tour an enchanted garden inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's writings and see artifacts from the poet's life. But curator Christopher Semtner is quick to point out that this museum is not focused on things: "It's a museum about something you can't really display: the imagination." Could it also be haunted?
Quirk Hotel May Be Richmond's Most Creative Place to Stay
