Stop by if you are in the area for another small little museum. It is in the area of the Mark Twain house and is worth a stop if you are in the area

This has been transformed into a museum for Becky Thatcher, not necessarily the house that sparked the character creation from the book. We thought the schoolroom was the neatest part so our kids could understand what it was like to go to school back in...More

This whole little 'area' is dedicated to Mark Twain. It was great to visit here and enjoy the spirt of such a great man and his life.

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.

There are two aspects to this building, a store and the museum. It is not large, but part of the larger complex of Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum. The shop is free, the museum has a fee. It was once home to Laura Hawkins,...More

An interesting place to find out about who Becky was, well... who Laura was, the girl that Mark Twain used as the model for Becky in his famous Tom Sawyer's book. A place to learn about history of Hannibal on that era as well.
