Countless readers remember the white fences and riverside scenery described in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. But fewer have visited the quaint two-story house where author Mark Twain spent his childhood, gathering inspiration for his famous stories. The spot, first converted into a museum in 1912, was named one of the Top 100 Places to Take Your Kids by Frommer's. Visitors today continue to peruse one-of-a-kind relics from Twain's life, such as his tobacco pipe, his pocket watch, and his Oxford gown. Seven other historic sites surround Twain's boyhood home, among them a museum gallery with 15 Norman Rockwell paintings that depict imagery from Twain's works and the Huckleberry Finn house, the former home of the character's real-life inspiration, Tom Blankenship.

"An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent." It was 1946 when Winston Churchill delivered that line during a speech at Westminster College. The iconic phrase has been frozen in time ever since, including at the Iron Curtain sculpture that now stands on campus and almost never blinks. The sculpture depicts the statesman in middle of the speech that arguably marked the beginning of the Cold War.

Churchill's voice and leadership marked many of the 20th Century's most important moments, and this legacy is chronicled within Westminster College's National Churchill Museum. The museum is housed beneath St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a church originally built in London in 1677 and eventually moved stone by stone to the college's campus.

Here, the Winston S. Churchill: A Life of Leadership exhibit chronicles Churchill's life in full. Displays incorporate artifacts, audio-visual components, and interactive areas, including a "gentleman's club" with an overstuffed chair, where visitors can listen to tales of Churchill's intelligence and humor. In addition to this permanent exhibit, rotating exhibits showcase different items from the museum's ever-growing vault, which now houses more than 10,000 artifacts.

In the pantheon of American explorers, there are few names as revered as Lewis and Clark. After securing the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, President Thomas Jefferson needed someone to map out the newly doubled national borders. The two U.S. Army officers were the men for the job. They set out into the great unknown in May of 1804, and except for the one Cracker Barrel they stopped at mid-journey, St. Charles was the last familiar piece of America they knew until their return trip in 1806.

As a testament to their momentous voyage, the Lewis & Clark Boat House & Nature Center houses full-scale replicas of the explorers' boats, half-scale 18th and 19th century buildings, and displays about the Native Americans that Lewis and Clark met along the way. Outside its walls, the museum also gives visitors a glimpse into the ecosystems that the pair explored. Visitors can walk on trails through the woods and wetlands to find herons, deer, and indigenous plants.

After a decade getting her hands dirty with clay, artist Donna Schreiter swung open the doors of The Painted Pot in 2001, determined to bring the art of ceramic creation to all ages and skill levels. Inside the open studio, adults, kids, and families dabble raw bisques with glaze-soaked sponges, assemble mosaic works, and shape wet clay on spinning wheels. Kids' classes guide little hands to shape and paint their own pieces, and grown-ups-only evenings throw in margaritas for sipping and instructions for weaving baskets out of old utilities bills.
