Becky's Gift Shop

Not much to see as far as exhibits go. You can see a photo of the real Beck Thatcher. A small gift shop as you exit.

This is part of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home complex, it is not a separate attraction. One admission price gets you access to everything in the complex.

It's OK. The best part was seeing the proximity to Mark Twain's home and recognizing how they all became such good friends. It's right across the street from the boyhood home. It this is helpful let me know. Thanks.

Part of the Mark Twain tour but also could be skipped. Not much to see here unfortunately. Much potential could be had here but is vastly under utilized.

We were disappointed in the house because it did not tell us much about the way Becky lived on how her house might have looked when she lived there. It was more exhibits rather than a connected story. Didn't get much sense of who she was.

Your ticket for the Mark Twain Museum includes this house. But it has nothing really to show except for a few notes on the wall of 2 rooms, it's basically a gift shop. It was a duplex rental house and they don't even know which side Becky Thatcher lived.

As noted in the other reviews, buy the combo package and see all of the Mark Twain sights. It does not take long, and all are worth seeing - even for a brief visit.

The Becky Thatcher House is included on the tour that you can purchase at the Boyhood home. It’s a small stop with not much in the house. There is a room with a couple period toys to try out and a room set up like a classroom which my group enjoyed taking a look at. There’s also a small gift... More

This home is one of several on the Hannibal historic home tour......it's across the street from Mark Twain's boyhood home. There is no historic furniture gracing the home, but it does provide a bit of added history to the tour. Included within the home are photos of past years of the yearly chosen winning representatives from the Becky Thatcher/Mark Twain... More
