“Reopening in 2013”

Ranked #7 of 28 things to do in Hannibal
Attraction details
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We just visited the Mark Twain museum which owns the Becky Thatcher house now. They are restoring it to open to the public next year. We got to peek in since there were workers there and talk to two nice young men. They told us the paint is now the original color and other interesting history. Turns out the girl who lived there was Mark Twain's childhood sweetheart so he named her Becky Thatcher in the book. Will return to see it finished. Good to see a museum project like this.

We went to Hannibal with Chelsea's Parent for a day trip, and were somewhat disappointed. It was a very cute little town, don't get me wrong. But most of the Mark Twain locations were run down, or even for sale. The one that we saw that was for sale even included the life size wax figures. Kinda weird.

Thank Chelsea_and_Joe

We had listened to a Mark Twain audiobook on the way to Hannibal and it really help Hannibal and the historic homes come alive. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

The house was under construction on my last trip, but I grew up visiting Becky Thatcher's house. It is right near Mark Twain's boyhood home, so it makes sense to make a quick stop here, as well!

This attraction was under construction during the time we visited and no idea when it would be completed, so all we got was a picture of the outside.
