The Edward Gorey House 2021 Season

Edward Gorey 2021 Hapless Children Exhibition


Summer Hours (July 7 to Oct 10)
Wed-Sat, 11am to 4pm; Sun, Noon to 4pm.

Our 2021 Season and exhibit Hapless Children Drawings from Mr. Gorey’s Neighborhood runs through Friday, December 31st. It is, by all accounts, not to be missed. While we cannot predict the unpredictable, it seems likely that Covid restrictions will continue to be eased as the season progresses. Capacity is still limited and appointments, while no longer required, are recommended.

Our docents returned in late June and our tour schedule of the House has been permanently revised to be hourly. Tours are conducted Wednesdays through Saturday at 11am, Noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. On Sundays tours are at Noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. With or without a reservation, plan your arrivals to the House accordingly. 3pm is the last tour of the day, and admissions to the House stop at 3:30. The House closes at 4pm.

Reservations are made by calling 508-362-3909 or by emailing the House at Tell us a time slot and number in your party. Parties of over 8 may be asked to pre-pay.

Facemask use is being relaxed, though congested situations may require the donning of facewear. Masks are recommended for the gift shop.

The exhibit Hapless Children has moments that may not be suitable to children 6 and under, this of course means that they will be delighted. The Gashlycrumb Tinies Scavenger Hunt is also in place for children and childish visitors. The House is handicapped accessible and photography is permitted within reason.
