Staff/volunteers was welcoming and knowledgeable. Displays were excellent, it weaves you between Sam Clemons life and Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn’s adventures. We also liked the Norman Rockwell drawings from Tom Sawyer.

Good experience for those interested in Mark Twain and the story of Tom Sawyer. One building in the group is obviously a newly built replica (and is labeled as such), but I thought the newness detracted from the overall experience. Lots and lots of material to read. Some of it is white print on the glass covering exhibits so you have to position yourself just so in order to read it. We visited midweek in September -- I would not want to deal with all the reading if the place was crowded.

Highly recommend. We enjoyed it very much. Never felt rushed, didn't have people telling us all about it, we were able to learn about stuff at our own pace.

What an enjoyable experience. Plan for about two hours to walk through eight different properties. All are thoughtfully curated. Brought back memories of reading the books as a child, and forward new information about Mark twain‘s inspirations for his beloved stories. The staff at each property are friendly and obviously enjoy their jobs.

About Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum

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.
