  • Worth a visit along with the Museum and a stroll down Main Street. Learned a lot about Mark Twain and his characters.

  • Visiting these several sites contained within the museum of Mark Twain's boyhood home will bring to life the characters portrayed in "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn," as well as will provide great insight into the childhood and family of origin of the legendary American author, Samuel Clemens. For us it was quite special since we visited his adult home in Hartford, Connecticut just 18 months ago. The Norman Rockwell paintings are a must-see!
  • What a fun place to visit. Makes me want to visit again, read all of his books, and explore much more. They have done a great job of preserving and telling his story. Military enters for free!
