It is always inspiring to see and experience the sites that were part of the lives of famous people ( particularly painters ). The Hopper house is one such place. It is easy to see how his painting was effected by the quality of light throughout the house and around town. Many of the subjects of his paintings are still standing and you can take a walking tour using the map provided by the docents. The architecture and backstory of the house's construction is a delight for design and history buffs. The artifacts,i.e. Hopper's old bicycle and paint box are charming and make a human connection to the artist and his life, as do the caricatures of his relationship with his wife.
There is also an exhibit area for shows by other artists that changes periodically.
Don't miss going upstairs to see the bathroom and bedroom ( now a studio that is in use by a writer). Well worth an hour (or less) of your time.
