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.

That really is personal preference. There are items throughout the home and museum and written information about each section. I think we were there two hours.

A minimum of 2 hours if you want to get the full effect of the tour. and that would not include such things as the river boat ride, etc. that you can take separately. We spent most of the day there, and could have spent even more time if we had not been on a schedule.

I would alliw 1.5 - 2 hours (excluding watching MT film) as you can walj around a number of buildings. However, there is a very good film in Mark Twain's home about his life. We watched it for 45 minutes, but would have loved to have stayed longer, but we were moving on.

If you want to see and enjoy everything, I would give two days time. There is the museum, the cave, Lover's Leap, the riverboat, meals, shopping. There is also a cool mansion being refurbished that we didn't have time but wanted to explore. It is a really cool town! Have fun!

It all depends if you do a tour with a guide, or just whip through the area. It's all right next to each other, so there's no travel time required. It's a tiny town, there's an actor that runs around looking like Mark Twain, he runs a theater and we went over and saw his theater and listened to him, that was about and hour and a half. The museums are smallish too, but if you had a full day there, you could probably see everything without much trouble. Go, spend money! Keep this historical area alive!

Half a day. The museum is great and had Norman Rockwells when we were there. If you get to go to the museum, too, you might need a little longer. We lingered and read most of the things on the wall. Have fun.
