A tribute to characters of one of America's greatest authors. Situated at the end of Main Street the Statue looks down on the tourist area of Hannibal. Just a few blocks from Mark Twain's home. Wonderful setting and close to several other restaurants and attractions.

The statue of Tom and Huck heads the downtown historic district of Hannibal, Missouri. Several shops and restaurants were open on the Saturday evening we stopped on our road trip to the East. Restaurants / Bars / Brewery / Wine Bar / Coffee and IceCream Bar / getcha souvenier shops and the Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher houses are all... More

it can be a little hard to find unless your really paying attention to map and street signs. parking around it is good, so you can get out and stand by it.

This statue of Tom and Huck is just a statue, so there's not a lot to say about it. But the execution is lovely - there's a nice area of greenery surrounding the boys and the depiction itself is very nice. I can't imagine why you would visit Hannibal and miss out on seeing Huck and Finn

Bypass the statue after a view and go on up the cliff/bluff and sit on the bench at the lighthouse to watch the Mississippi and have some quiet, peaceful time! This is a statue with some flowers planted around it. Not saying the statue wasn't well done but it is what it is. Walk up the hill (lots of steps... More

It was very interesting to see a statue of fictional characters. It is a nice depiction, though, and made me think of days gone by when as a child I would sit in the library and read about Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.

I am not sure how to rate a statue. It is a beautiful statue near the cavern opening. The area is nice and well maintained. There are a lot of treat picture opportunities.

You pass the statue as you make your way to the lighthouse. How can you make a trip to Tom and Huck's hometown and not pause for a few moments at the statue?

Just to be in this historic town on the Missisippi river was awesome and to see this lovely statue bought it all to life. Well looked after and nice gardens around it
