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

We visited Hannibal and found lots of lovely statues including this one in the town. Our visit to the docks and gardens were most enjoyable.

Chances are if you are visiting Hannibal, it's to re-live part of your youth and nothing will take you there faster than pondering this statue.

Located at th foot of the Cardiff Hill and owned by the Museum the statue of Huck and Fin the legendary characters of Huckleberry Fin, stands on a pedestal whoch cannot be missed. The artistry of,the statues is just mind blowing capturing the boys in a playful mood.

We saw the statue from the trolley. We highly recommend the trolley ride as you go place you'd have to take time to find otherwise. Also some streets are rather narrow.

For being a statue, I give it 5/5. But there are many more interesting things to see and do in Hannibal. The fact that Mark Twain found inspiration here is way cooler than the silly statue.

The statue of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn was very nice. It was located right at the edge of the downtown area, next to the Mississippi River and across the street from the Mark Train Brewery Restaurant.
