Being born and raised in Keokuk, IA, I had been to the Mark Twain Boyhood area a couple of times throughout my life. Last Saturday going through it as an older adult and actually reading and paying attention, I found out so much about Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain that I thought I knew but didn't. The Interpretive Center, Becky Thatcher's Home and the Mark Twain Museum were my favorites of the buildings. If you are a fan of the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn books, or Mark Twain in general, I recommend checking this attraction out. I lot of good information about the author and the characters of his books.

My husband and I came here on Saturday, June 23. Really enjoyed the Interpretive Center. The other buildings were good but frustrating from a photographer point of view - too much glass! The overall, however, is very educational.

Went with the family to see the museum. Very nicely done. There is a lot of history of Mark Twain and quotes from his writings. This is a self guided tours and you go at your pace. There was a groupon going on when we went, so it was a steal. Museum is really worth checking out. Really like the Norma Rockwell paintings! Check it out!

If you are a Mark Twain fan you will enjoy. Glad we had a Groupon. Saved us half the cost. Nice museum.

Just an average attraction. Love Mark Twain but I would not return to this attraction. Just didn't hold the appeal of other attractions in this town.
