Interesting historical spot and fun to do with the family. Cute shops in the area. Mark Twain Dinette had good food and was nearby. Be aware that the lighthouse is up a flight of 242 steps, but you can drive up to it, too.

It is best to go during warm weather. It was chilly when we went. Most of the shops were closed and there was a fair amount of walking outside.

Nice visit. Just plan plenty of time. There are a lot of shops and we had no time to visit them.

Very interesting exhibits! This is a self guided tour, to get the most out of it plan on spending at least a half a day. Make sure you attend the special presentations too.

Let people know that none of the merchants in Hannibal take credit cards. Only cash or local checks. To me not good for business. Ironically they had ATM machines available. Delightful town, but they would probably get more traffic if they took credit and or debit cards.

From Our Editors

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.
