Edgar Allan Poe considered gardens to be one of the highest art forms. The Museum's own Enchanted Garden was created in the 1920s to honor this passion. A garden oasis in Historic Downtown Richmond, the Poe Museum makes for a wedding venue that is absolutely poetic!
Rental of this outdoor venue is available year-round. For more information, visit

Beautiful and affordable
The Poe Museum was perfect for our wedding. The garden is beautiful and Debbie Phillips was great to communicate with. Nothing but the space was included but it's affordable enough to rent everything and still be less expensive than comparable venues. They have good connections with vendors (Party Perfect and Blue Ridge Lighting among others) that know the space and won't have any questions/concerns about set up. This in particular was helpful and made having our wedding there so easy. There are some stipulations because it's a historic venue but none of them were an issue at all. I even think the "no open flames" rule worked out better since I didn't have to worry about my battery operated candles (that flickered and looked real) from blowing out or getting wax everywhere. As soon as the ceremony started Debbie realized that the fountain was too loud for our guests to hear us and she immediately ran and turned it off. I loved how present and accommodating the staff is there while also not being overbearing. The Poe Museum was the first thing we booked and I'm so glad we did!

The Poe Museum was the perfect venue for our garden wedding. The unique location was a favorite with guests. Everyone at the museum was very helpful. They always responded to my emails promptly and had great vision for the day.

The site was beautiful! Jamie responds quick and is very helpful.
The Poe Museum is such a charming historic venue that has such a classic "Richmond" feel. Aside from the beauty of the venue, it is in a great location in Church Hill, which is very close to many great downtown reception venues.
