Not a lot to see here. Two rooms covered the former Tom and Becky's named each year in Hannibal's Tom Sawyer's Days. You do learn more about the neighbor who inspired Becky Thatcher.

It was exceptionally clean, but didn't seem to have much going on. Nice pictures of the Becky Thatcher and Tom Sawyer contests through the years.

The hsitorial photos were very interesting- offering lots of facts. NIce gift shop. School room was set up as it would have been when Mark Twain lived there. Wooded desks and blackboard. Floors appeared to be original. Hours are from 9-5.

Then you have to visit this place, too. A ticket to the Mark Twain boyhood home gets you into this house as well, and there is a lot of information on the background and people inhabiting Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer world. It doesn't take long to see, but is worth the time.

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.

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.
