The Edward Gorey Museum

We are big fans of his work. He had a macabre leaning but in a playful way and his art is just fantastic. Our second time there, the house offerings were sparser, someone mentioned a traveling show elsewhere, but it was still a pleasure.

Photo credit, these first three taken by the husband, the rest by me.

The museum is in Gorey's home in Yarmouth, Massachusetts 

It is both homey and silly and kitschy and respectful all at once
Also has a good gift shop tucked away :)

The writer and artist as friends no doubt knew him

Yes, worth a trek if you're on the Cape.
