We visited on a weekday in September and were amazed at how busy the museum was. Reservations were required for the tour and we were able to see most of the museum before it started. Like any other museum, some will be more interested than others. Reading is necessary. The house itself is a work of art, whether your interest is Mark Twain or architecture. There is ample parking on site. The museum and first floor or the house are accessible but there are three stories in the house tour that require climbing stairs. This is a fast-paced tour and those who cannot move swiftly are left behind. I understand the need to adhere to a schedule, but I was not able to fully enjoy my time in the house.

Interesting walk through he home and museum. It was a little strange the family only lived in the home for four years, and it was turned into a museum but nice home to tour. They were providing limited tours due to COVID, and encouraged booking online.

The Mark Twain House & Museum is a definite must see and visit attraction of Hartford, Connecticut!!! The historic home of Mark Twain, one of America’s most respected and renowned storyteller is only accessible through guided tours. In October of 2020, my wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the Mark Twain House & Museum and we absolutely enjoyed our tour experience!!! We learned a great deal about the history of Mark Twain‘s House, Twain & his family, and the staff that helped manage and care for the home. We also viewed a few furnishings owned by the Twain family and visited the room that Twain used to write his famous Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn stories. My wife and I definitely owe a great deal of thanks and appreciation to George, our tour guide. George made sure that our tour of the Mark Twain House & Museum was an absolute fun and worthwhile experience!!!

This was a very fun and informative experience. The museum is beautiful, clean and looks new. The staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. They are meticulous about following safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the facility. Interpretive exhibits are well organized and interesting. There is an informative video that runs about 20 minutes. They have clean restrooms and a nice bookstore with books and a variety of other souvenirs. The house is marvelously maintained and the architecture impressive. The house is filled with period pieces, many original to the house or the Clemens and Langdon families. The interpretation by the docent was wonderful! You can also see the exterior of the Harriet Beecher Stowe house, which is right next door.

My wife and I went on a day trip to Hartford, CT. Stooped here to see the home of Mark Twain. They have a very informative information center with a short movie. As for the house tour it was very interesting, you get to see a good portion of the house covering 3 floors. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and Twain and his hohse.
