This small museum is a labor of love--dedicated to the life and works of Edward Gorey. It is as delightfully quirky as the artist it honors. One of a kind. A must see destination. And make sure you do the scavenger hunt. It is priceless!!

Even if you're not a Gorey fan, great collection of his work. Small museum since it was his home. Very informative.
