Everyone was SUPER friendly! We donated to help with repairs. We went in the morning and it wasn't crowded at all. It was very crowded by the time we finished.

It is a small town so I advise looking up other things to do there as well like Rockcliffe Mansion. But it was fun and interesting and full of quotes that will leave you thinking and giggling.

Start at the Visitor's Center and enjoy all of the houses around it! The people there could not have been nicer, and Twain fans will love this adventure!

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.
