The quick museum at the beginning is the most informative. The rest is a self walking tour that would be better if there was an audio tour available. Good job at preserving the sites Mark Twain wrote about.

Great job of bringing Mark Twain to life. The house and museum hold many interesting artifacts. If you are in the area worth a couple hrs.

Very informative and an awesome experience. I would do it again! It was awesome learning about the real people behind such beloved characters. Don't rush through the museum at the entrance.

This is one of the most impressive, small museums I have seen. The home has been painstakingly restored down including the furniture. Great quotes and videos throughout.

Very nice tour. It is self guided which is nice. The same thoughts as in Abe Lincon's life how did they live is such small places.

The Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum suggests allowing at least an hour to view the historic homes and two interactive museums. But you could easily spend more time with all of the information available.
