Amidst all the springtime beauty on the Cape this time of year, there are a host of interesting places that reopen for the season. We welcome back all of these, but none more so than The Gorey House, which is a gentle five minute walk from our bed and breakfast, The Inn At Cape Cod, on Yarmouth Port’s village green.
If you are unacquainted with the life and works of Edward Gorey, you will find an hour in this museum a richly rewarding experience, and you will doubtless come away with a gift or two from the shop – you are in for a treat!
There are many quirky exhibits to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of The House, and the admission price remains extremely reasonable. This acclaimed artist and writer has a considerable international following, as well as the U.S., however you do not have to be a Gorey fan to enjoy and appreciate his incredibly diverse works.
There are always a number of events and new exhibits to make all the more reason to plan a visit. For example, the 2011 special exhibit is “Edward Gorey and the Performing Arts”. Our favourite event is the annual “Pets around the Common Day”, which takes place this year in September.
So why not plan your visit to stay with us – we are offering a couple of tickets for admission to the Gorey House for any two night stay in one of our luxury rooms. Add a third night and you will receive a Gorey Cat. To qualify, just quote this blog.
