There's only so much you can do with a statue, but this one didn't have a little plaque or anything to give a little bit of details about the statue, which I've usually seen at historic statues elsewhere. Located close to the other Mark Twain related "things to do" in Hannibal so if you're planning to go to any of... More

At the North end of Main Street near the boyhood home of Mark Twain. Immediately above the statue is an overlook with a nice view of the river and downtown. Continuing up the steps brings you to the lighthouse which was closed on the Sunday when we were there. While we were there the trolley tour pulled up and explained,... More

The statue was right at the bottom of the light house and the end of Main Street. It was a great picture place.

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
