I We were attracted to the place because our son loves Gorey so much. His illustrations and stories are unique, comedic, and poignant. The house presents some of the many eclectic items that the artist collected over his life. The docent showed some of Gorey's...More

We have known about this museum since it opened. We do not get to the Cape very often. The Foundation has really done a fabulous job of telling the story of our favorite eccentric artist. Lots of his books available in the Gift Shop.

The Edward Gorey House is the actual home where he resided, which made it special from the outset. Gorey's mother was a pack-rat and saved EVERYTHING that had to do with Edward. Every youthful drawing, every school paper, every tiny little photo-booth photo. What a...More

While visiting on Cape Cod, I did a search of museums and what should appear but Edward Gorey's house...open to the public. After years of seeing his drawings grace the opening and closing credits of PBS's Mystery series, how could I NOT visit?! It's about...More
