Su to Sa from 01:00 PM to 04:00 PMThe mission of Thurber House is to "celebrate the written word for the education and entertainment of the broadest possible audience and to continue Thurber's legacy of humor." The gentleman this mission refers to is James Thurber, the humorist and cartoonist famous for his genre-transcending witticisms. Thurber House, located in the college-age home of the writer, is both a non-profit center promoting literacy and a museum of the writer's life and materials. The first two floors of the home are open for daily tours and, in the spirit of truly knowing the Thurber legacy, guests are encouraged to touch many items in the home.
