The Edward Gorey House 2021 Season

Edward Gorey 2021 Hapless Children Exhibition


Spring Hours (April 8 to July 4)
Thurs-Sat, 11am to 4pm; Sun, Noon to 4pm.

Our 2021 Season and exhibit Hapless Children opens on Thursday, April 8th.

While we cannot predict the unpredictable, it’s likely Covid contingencies will still be in place through much of the season. Capacity will be limited and appointments are highly recommended. Between Thurs and Sat appointments can be made for 11am, Noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.  The House opens at noon on Sundays and so there is no 11am tour. The House closes at 4pm and we tend not to admit people after 3:30pm.

Reservations can be made by calling 508-362-3909 or by emailing the House at We’ll want to know a time slot and number in your party. Single parties are generally limited to no more than six except by prior arrangement.

House visits require facemasks being worn at all times. We cannot say if full docent services will be up and running, but scheduled visits to the House at the top of the hour will start with an introductory talk, followed by a self-tour. Feel free to ask yourself as many difficult questions as you can handle.

The exhibit Hapless Children has moments that may not be suitable to children 6 and under, but you know your children. The Gashlycrumb Tinies Scavenger Hunt is in place for children and childish visitors. The House is handicapped accessible and photography is permitted within reason.

Updates From Our Blog

Three new acquisitions have recently enriched the archives of the Edward Gorey House. Without the funding mechanism to purchase Edward’s increasingly valuable works, we rely on the generosity of friends, strangers, and those jaded collectors trying to unclutter their lives.
