Visited here on a family trip. Last time I was here was 25 years ago. It was very well done and updated. Lots of great history and information. Really enjoyed the sites and self guided tour. Military and immediate family are free entry.

Not a good idea. We just left and half the tour was closed without telling us. Not a good idea for young kids. Good for photos tho, but you can do that with out paying.

Interesting to see the town and memorabilia of the stories I read growing up. Reminds us of how America once was.

The Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum suggests allowing at least an hour to view the historic homes and two interactive museums. But you could easily spend more time with all of the information available.
