We visited the statue when a bus load of students were also visiting. It was a wonderful time with the students interacting around the statue and expressing their interest.

The Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn statue is located at the foot of the stairway that leads to the lighthouse. The area around the statue is nicely landscaped.

Hannibal in July during the annual Tom Sawyer Days is the time to go! Mud volleyball championships, whitewashing races, Tom and Becky contests, etc.

Neat statue in downtown Hannibal! A must see for all statue fans! Check it out when you're in Hannibal and take some fun pictures with the boys!

If you hike up Cardiff Hill, you'll see this statue whether you intend to or not! It's at the base of the hill and overlooks the Mississippi River. This is - of course - a necessary stop for folks on a Mark Twain pilgrimage.

You can stand next to the statute and have your picture taken. I loved to read Mark Twain's books when I was young so it feels great to be here in person and walk the streets and see the Mississippi River.

My 9 and 11 year old hiked all the way from the statue to the lighthouse. Great view of Main Street and miss river. Take the time to just strolll through town at sunset it's worth it.
