For $11, you get into 5 different buildings. Pretty good price and worth a few hours of your time. It's self-guided although the folks at the entrances are very helpful if you have questions or are looking for recommendations about where to eat.

The reasonable fee includes entry to several museums. The Mark Twain and Huck Finn boyhood homes are great, and I especially recommend the museum Gallery. Well worth your time to learn more about this amazing man.

Loved it. Kind of chilly weather when we were here but that didn't take away from the experience. We left with a feeling that we now knew Samuel Clemons

If you have traveled down the memory lane of Twain, it's worth the visit. Just take you time and enjoy the structure of the building.

This is a wonderful area to spend some time in; the boyhood homes, museum, etc have really been done well. There is a lot more to Samuel Clemens than "Mark Twain", his pen name. Very interesting reading of the history and life of the whole...More

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.

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.
