The Edward Gorey House is absolutely wonderful and definitely a must see. They have tour guides inside whom will take you around the house and share a bunch of EG facts with you. However, you don't actually NEED to stay with them. You're free to just wander on your own and gather information at your own pace. My husband and I took the little walking tour and then stayed for hours just adventuring by ourselves.

It's not a very big place since it was Edward Gorey's house and not originally intended to work as a museum, so you might want to keep that in mind if you're part of a large group looking for something to do. There's room for a decent amount of people, but just realize that you're probably not going to be the only group on the tour.

The gift shop has a bunch of Gorey merch but it can get a bit pricey. It may have cost me $10 but I did walk away with a fantastic EG cat pin when I visited. The price of admission isn't too bad so you don't have to feel completely horrible getting a little something from the gift shop. Just try not to buy TOO many cat pins.

If you have children you can most definitely bring them along with you. Kids (and adults) are able to do the Gashlycrumb Tinies scavenger hunt. I'm proud to say that my husband and I were able to find all 26 whilst we were there. The Elephant House is one of my favorite places that I've ever been and is definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something a bit different to do near the Cape.
