Loved this place. The tour guide was fun. I could go back and spend a lot of time. Excellent curation. A favorite was the drawing he did at 18 months, saved by his mom.

A must for a Gorey fan. The house he actually lived in on Cape Cod. The kitchen is especially fun. Imagine all his cats.

If you’re interested in Edward Gorey, it’s a short, interesting museum to tool through. He was a fascinating guy. The gift shop is well stocked with interesting prints, books, and novelties.

The cost to get in is $8 for adults, $2 age 6 to 12. This man was very interesting with his different collections, and did illustrations for several mystery authors, including Agatha Christie. They have a scavenger type list that the kids can follow to...More

This year's exhibit at the Gorey House is about Gorey's reading, writing, and illustrating murder mysteries. The exhibits are fascinating, with brilliant texts. The house itself is wonderful, too.

We couldn’t believe the rudeness of the guy taking tickets at the front of the museum- We arrived at 3:44 and he would not let us enter but said we could browse the shop- no thank you. I understand not letting us in, but there...More
