Looks great

The statue is in the park and stands out. It just adds to the intrest of the town. Near the steps to the lighthouse.

Great stop for a photo opportunity before making the trek up to the light house. This statue set is one of many in the town of Hannibal, with great attention to detail.

This statue is located at the north end of Hannibal's Main Street. It is nicely landscaped. The statue is also located at the bottom of the hill from the Samuel Clemens Memorial lighthouse.

At the end of the main street of the historic Hannibal downtown, stands this appropriately place tribute to the two boys who exemplify the hearts and souls of 19th Century boyhood. Easy to view from street level, the statue is in a pleasantly maintained park area on a hill at the end of the street.

If you are coming to Hannibal you should stop here if nothing but for the photo op. There are also lots of quaint shops nearby.

I have taken my grands to stand in front and take a picture and every year I take my students from my English class to tour all the points of interest and we take a picture there as well. It's just a great part of the Mark Twain experience!

The kids enjoyed taking pictures with the statue and going up and then down all those stairs. About half way up the 244 stairs there is a lovely butterfly garden. You can also see the remains of the original bridge that used to cross the Mississippi river.

An outside statue at the base of Cardiff Hill. Not much more to say over and above looking at the photo. Looks exactly like you would expect.

Look, don't go out of your way, but if you're walking by, enjoy what is a rather nice statue. End of story <-- and I only said that to get over the 100 character minimum.
