My husband and I enjoyed a few hours walking thru the Mark Twain's museum, home, and characters' homes. Each location is well detailed and gives great information. Its all within small walking distance which is great!

As a nice diversion to the craziness of life - we made the effort to drive from Indiana to Hannibal MO to see the boyhood home and inspiration for Samuel Clements “Mark Twain”’s Huckleberry Finn Adventures. We are so glad we did! 👏 We had a wonderful time. So much to see and do. It took us about 2 hours to see the various sights, houses, displays and interactive exhibits. It’s definitely an amazing reflection on the challenges our country had during the 1850’s - 1860’s. The issues of slavery, treatment of those in poverty and the expectations and experiences of those from refined lifestyles. We learned so much about Mark Twain - that by the time we left - we felt like we had spent and afternoon sitting on his porch and laughing and philosophizing with him. There are some great deals available on GROUPON for discounts on tickets. Otherwise - expect to pay about $15/person. All tours and displays are COVID safe. Masks are recommended as well as social distancing. As in the words of Mark Twain: “Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other.” Have a great time 🤗

What a fantastic place to visit. My only regret is that our stay was only for a couple of hours as we had to move on. We visited the Twain homeplace and walked over to the Missouri River walk. Sadly we took no tours but would recommend to take the time to do so. The lady in the museum was so friendly and helpful. We had a picnic lunch on the public tables then moved on to South Dakota. Long day but I will definitely come back to Hannibal to take the tours and spend more time here!

I enjoyed my visit here very much. Other visitors were not masked, so I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked, but the exhibits were very interesting and entertaining.

Visited the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum, pleasantly surprised to find that Military Veterans are admitted free. Kids may not be that entertained, but I found it quite interesting. The tour encompasses several buildings, to include Mark Twain’s Boyhood Home, Huckleberry Berry Finn House, Becky Thatcher House, and several others. Well worth the time to check out while in Hannibal.
