A lot of pictures

It showed pictures of Laura the girl that Samuel Clemmons based the character Becky Thatcher on. It also showed local kids who have portrayed Tom and Becky through the years.

How can you see Mark Twain's boyhood home and not see Becky Thatcher's house? House has recently undergone a perfect and very expensive restoration.

I did like seeing the artifacts they had in here. The cool thing was seeing who all had toured this attraction. Staff weren't real friendly. The place was in great shape.

There are items that belong to "Becky" and pictures of her with Twain, but nothing like Mark Twain's home. I hope more work will be done to decorate it. This is included in the cost of the admittance of Twain's house.

This was a package ticket, about 6 places included in ticket. Mostly just hope to see, no personal items. However was interesting. Brought back memories from reading the Mark Twain books.

While I am a Mark Twain fan, this building was only mildly interesting. It recently underwent a restoration, and the building looks to be restored, but there are not many items in the home that were Becky's personal belongings. Glad we got to see it, though.

All pictures and context but worth the visit. Included in the ticket for Mark Twin House & Museum. Look for the coupon book that admits one free for one paid.

The home has been totally re-built from a state of disrepair. It is a wonderful image of an early 19th century home; however, it is furnished sparsely and in my opinion offers little to the one who is looking to enhance his or her knowledge or appreciation for the Mark Twain story. It is fun to look at the photographs... More

The cost for the Mark Twain boyhood home and all the surrounding places such as Becky Thatcher is included in your ticket. Very nicely kept and gives sense of the times they lived.

I enjoyed it but I enjoy anything historical, didn't hold my 10 year old granddaughter's attention very well.
