Our visit was part of the bigger tour that included the interactive museum and other historic places in Mark Twain's world. Take a few minutes to visit all of them.

The tour of the boyhood home and museum was good. It was fun to see the history of Mark Twain and to see what inspired some of his classics.

There are two aspects to this building, a store and the museum. It is not large, but part of the larger complex of Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum. The shop is free, the museum has a fee. It was once home to Laura Hawkins,...More
