  • We visited all the houses and the museum. We enjoyed all the sites. Unfortunately the drug store is in the process of remodel so we missed that.  more »
  • Kids will be very, very bored in the museum section, which has many exhibits that need repair. Even fans of Mark Twain's writing will spend a lot of time yawning in the museum.  more »
  • We got a coupon off Groupon which got us two tickets for the price of one. The tour was very informative and definitely worth while.  more »

  • I love this place. Go at your own pace! Or have a guided tour per reservation
  • Good museum/historic area about Mark Twain and his characters. Site comprises of 8 locations, all with in a short walk, furthest one away is two short city blocks from the rest.
  • Very neat. Some things were under construction so couldn't go though all the houses but this is something I've very glad we saw.
  • We got a great deal on tickets from Groupon and the place was well maintained and enjoyable. A good stop on a road trip or day trip from St. Louis.
  • Place was awesome. Relive our past with a bit of history to it.
