Due to the increase in health concerns in connection with the coronavirus, and as a matter of care for our staff, visitors, the community and the city,  The Edgar Allan Poe CottageThe Museum of Bronx History at the Valentine-Varian House, The Bronx County Historical Society Research Library, and The Bronx County Historical Archives are currently all closed to the public until further notice.

We wish everyone well, and look forward to the day when we can re-open for visitors once again.

Upon re-opening, please be advised that all visitors to New York  from states on the travel advisory list will be required to fill out the New York Online Traveler Health Form upon arrival, and potentially quarantine for 14 days. To see the most up-to-date list of restricted states and to fill out the form, please visit the New York Department of Health website here.
