Every summer, The Metropolitan Museum of Art puts something cool on its roof. This year we get to enjoy a (queer) classic in the midst of New York City: the Psycho house.

The house was created by British artist Cornelia Parker and is titled, "Transitional Object (PsychoBarn)," aka a replica of the home in Alfred Hitchcock's iconic horror film. Parker also cites Edward Hopper landscapes as inspiration, which the Psycho house was rumored to be modeled after. The house is covered in reclaimed wood from an actual barn and is guaranteed to spook.

The exhibit opens today through October 31 (coincidence? we think not!). See more photos at Curbed.
