This was a fun place to visit. All the people working there were friendly and helpful people. It was so nice to learn more about America's favorite author and see where he grew up.

Mark Twain is Hannibal's claim to fame so they cherish everything associated with him, no matter how tenuous. The Boyhood Home and Museum is a perfect example. A cluster of 19th Century buildings along the street where he lived have been brought together and made...More

The Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum suggests allowing at least an hour to view the historic homes and two interactive museums. But you could easily spend more time with all of the information available.
