Small but so interesting. A most strange exhibition when we visited including the things Edward Gorey collected and they were a most eclectic mix. We followed a Scavenger Hunt and found all the answers. The building was EGs home and it has been crammed with...More

I never read a book by Edward Gorey. In fact, I never had heard of him until someone recommended that my wife and I should visit the Edward Gorey House, or the Elephant House, during our visit to Cape Cod in Massachussets. Located at 8...More

I didn't realize that it was a fan of Edward Gorey until I entered his house and saw his illustrations. I have long been a fan of Mystery! on Masterpiece Theater, even watching just the beginning to see his illustrations on the opening credits. He...More

Loved this house/museum. There is nothing that quite compares to seeing an artists work displayed where some was crested.

If you've seen the introduction to Masterpiece Mystery on TV, you know of Edward Gorey. The docent-led tour of this most unusual house was unique.

Always loved his drawings. A little strange but whimsical. For those who may not recognize the name think about the PBS Mystery opening animation. The tour guide was filled with humorous and very interesting stories about Gorey's life.

I knew about Edward Gorey but didn't really learn about him until we visited the Edward Gorey House. It was a bit busy, as we went on a free museum Friday day, but it was magical and wonderful nonetheless. This is a must see for...More

The first thing I noticed was George, smothered under a rug. When I heard that the rest of the Gashlycrumb Tinies could be found in a scavenger hunt, I was hooked. Finding Neville was a challenging thrill! Already a fan of Gorey, I came away...More
