Worthwhile visiting and learning more about what life was like during Samuel Clemens lifetime for him, as well as his "characters." Some interesting artifacts including toys and foreign language publications of his books.

Great value, admission to 3 museum properties. Nice period renovation, information on home life and school life of the period. Grandkids liked it.

The highlight was seeing a photo of the inspiration for Becky Thatcher as an adult with Mark Twain. A few artifacts of old schools.
