I've been an Edward Gorey fan for many years, but I had no idea about his home in Yarmouth Port and the museum that had been established there. I was not disappointed. The docents were very knowledgeable, and I enjoyed the scavenger hunt to find references to all 26 of the Gashlycrumb Tinies. It has a lovely little gift shop,... More

We did not know a lot about Edward Gorey coming in and learned a lot in our visit. Our guide was sweet and I think she knew him. They must have done a lot since his death in 2000 to make the museum since by all accounts Gorey was a hoarder who took in stray cats - but fear not... More

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 treasure! The exhibits are laid out in glass cases and labeled very precisely. There are... 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 mid-way on the Cape, so easy to get to. Parking is across the street where... More

Loved our visit here and had an excellent guide in Nancy who gave us an overview before letting us loose to read everything for ourselves. We spent about an hour there and got nearly all of the scavenger hunt answers - fun - as well as lots of interesting information about Edward Gorey. Chap at register was very friendly and... More

We saw the EGH two years ago and we are still charmed by the magic and whimsy of Edward Gorey. Best of all, examples of the Gashlycrumb Tinies are scattered around the house and it's a blast finding them. Photography is allowed. The staff is great. We ❤ the Edward Gorey House

I'm interested in Edward Gorey's art. My husband and son just came along. They have a "scavenger hunt" which was so much fun, we all did it.

Unless you are familiar with the works of Edward Gorey, you would never stop there. I took the recommendation of a local, and spent time visiting the former home of Edward Gorey. Edward Gorey was an eclectic artist who died in 2000. This is his home, turned into a museum. You will see the influence Edward Gorey had on Tim... More
