I visited this place on the way from Chicago to Kansas City. I like the historical places and it did not disappoint me, of course. The old town had very interesting architecture. And the writer's house. Walking through the streets of his town was truly a great moment for me. As for the old place is in quite good condition preserved. A front of every historic building is located array of diligent description. Near the house right next to the parking lot are located stairs after which you can get out of the old bridge which was located here. Of course it is called the Mark Twain Bridge. From this place it is a great view of the whole area. This museum is really a treausure and the people who take care of it should be so proud.

One of the most adorable, old-timey tourist spots left! The people are incredible - I keep saying someone should make a documentary about this place because there's a serious zaniness. The cave, boyhood home, museum, riverboat, lighthouse, cemetery, and Lulabelle's (fantastic ex-brothel turned restaurant) all make it worth the trek. I seriously think I could LIVE here (and that's saying a lot coming from a New Yorker.) Music Under the Stars features some incredible talents too. Try to visit around the 4th of July for mud volleyball, parades, Tom and Becky contest, whitewashing contests, and carnival rides - all were fantastic!

Perfect for families! Interactive exhibits had our small children excited to keep exploring. The museum was our favorite spot in Hannibal. The raft and steam whistle had us there almost everyday!

Me and my husband jim were the first couple married at the lighthouse 20 yrs ago on july 2. We had our reception on the mark twain river boat. It was all so nice . We had 16 people travel there and I recommend going out of town for anyone to get married. It was during mark twain days and we all loved it. The people and businesses were all so nice. Thank you pam and jim adams

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn fans, you will love this! History of Samuel Clemens and how he developed his characters and plots are revealed here as well as much American history. Stroll "downtown" and visit the Indian Trading Post too - an interesting store with unique gifts. Sad to say that the museum is in some need of funding. Becky Thatcher's home and the Grant Drugstore were both closed, but information was provided outside about their significance.

The properties of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum are what DEFINE Hannibal as America's home town. Every time I return to the "white town drowsing," I am reminded of the power of the place and the river to evoke an emotional response in visitors. The Museum not only preserves the life and works of our country's greatest author, but also offers guests an authentically small town, welcoming experience. Folks leave the Museum informed, happy, and planning a return visit.

Best museum and town I've been to in years! This place is definitely worth the trip.
