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

We had no idea that the place was so adorable. Cute illustrations all around and a wonderful sense of Gorey and his personality.

We picked a rainy day to visit and, while it was a great indoor activity, everyone else had the same idea and it was pretty crowded. Because this is an actual house, the rooms are fairly small and it doesn't take much to feel as...More

Charming, eclectic, weird and wonderful. All of those things that you love about Gorey, plus docent you knows what's what. A lovely location on the Cape, in Yarmouth. Bring a picnic and have it in the charming common directly across the street from Gorey's home.
