It was great to travel back in time to see Becky Thatcher's house still standing. Loved all of the area in Hannibal. Make this a stop while driving through Missouri.

The Becky Thatcher House is part of the package tour of Mark Twain-related buildings in downtown Hannibal. It includes period furnishings, but more importantly it is designed to let you walk through childhood life in the 1800s from the perspective of one of four of the main characters in Tom Sawyer.

This house is part of the larger Mark Twain experience. It complements the other houses/buildings well, but is mostly more of the memorabilia, and some interesting facts/photographs.

There again, this is included with the other historical buildings on that block of Tom Sawyer's house, etc. Full of interesting artifacts and antiques. Kids may be bored.

This is included as part of the ticket price for the Boyhood Home, etc. Make sure you take advantage of the whole set of buildings.

Ok for young adults. Nice presentation, but just didn't ring our bell. Would definitely put it on your list to visit in Hannibal.

Nothing looks permanent, it all looks temporary. It looks like they took a house and put a bunch of stuff in a wall. Its literally a waste of time and money.

A part of the Mark Twain Museum. Excellent restoration and significant part of the history of Tom Sawyer.

This was a very nice museum and there were plenty of hands-on things that kids could relate to as well. The information was presented in a way that was easy to follow. Lots of pictures and sounds to go along with the tour. I would recommend stopping here for sure!
