The Edward Gorey House reminds me of the old houses I so admired when I would visit that East Coast as a child with multiple stories, A-line roofs and quasi-Victorian architectural details. The downstairs area is small but packs in a lot of material that is well chosen and arranged. The curator/guide gives a short talk about Gorey at the beginning and then patrons are free to explore the exhibit. I learned new and interesting facts about Gorey and came away with a greater appreciation of the man and the artist. I was especially impressed with the contributions he made to community theater in Cape Code.

Nothing on the website to indicate that this is unfortunately closed to the public. Too bad as we went, couldn’t roust anyone despite a few cars in the parking lot, called and got a recorded message. Too bad, looked interesting from what I could see peeking in from a few windows.

Great choice for adults to find out history of Cape Cod and Edward Gorey. It is a fun place to visit and leaves a memory of eccentric people.

I never knew about Edward Gorey before going to the house, but went along with my family who knew him. They loved the house. It was tough for me to get a great sense of everything as my 4 year old was constantly moving and not able to sit still. It was very interesting learning who he was and seeing his illustrations. Would recommend, but would keep the toddlers home so you can enjoy!

Even if you are not a fan of Edward Gorey, you will learn a lot about this creative man. He was a bit eccentric, which makes touring the house all that much more interesting. The docents have lots of information to share, and were very welcoming. Cute little gift shop with a good selection of books, T-shirts and other Gorey paraphernalia.
