Surprising how they had to live in those days. Very crude small home. We couldn't imagine how they survived.

The tour of the boyhood home and museum was good. It was fun to see the history of Mark Twain and to see what inspired some of his classics.

Very well done, educational walking tour of Mark Twain's boyhood neighborhood. Lot's of history in nicely restored buildings. Tons of photos and artifacts. Well worth exploring.

We had a wonderful experience at this museum, which includes outbuildings as well. There is so much that we weren't able to see everything, and are already planning a trip back. Plan on spending several hours.

We did not take the tour, simply strolled around and the signage was very helpful. However, if you look on the official website , there is a click link to the tour options with prices. Enjoy your visit, it is a great Town.
