    Firstly, I have to compliment everyone who works at the Mark Twain House & Museum; you guys do a stellar job! It was an amazing experience that I will treasure for a long time, and all the work and outstanding effort that you have put into the house and museum clearly shines through! My family and I visited from PA to learn more about Mark Twain, taking the house tour, perusing the archives, and later exploring the museum as well. Throughout the entire visit, the staff were both helpful and every ounce the Twainian scholar, providing for an extremely enjoyable and informational tour that everyone, from myself to my 9-year-old brother, highly appreciated. Our guide was very knowledgeable, engaging, and offered the same droll humor that you’d expect from Mark Twain himself! A great experience that I highly recommend!

    I went very early on Tuesday November 18th and I was lucky enough to have Betsy as my guide and I was the only person for her first tour! We were able to talk and I saw how modern this house is for the period of time. It’s very interesting to know that Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain=Safe water) was living during the time of the Civil War! This place is amazing!! Don’t miss it when visiting Hartford, CT or even take less than 2 hours from Boston. Just in front of this house is another landmark: Harriet Beecher Stowe’s home, the “Little Lady who wrote the Book that started this Great War”. This is what Abraham Lincoln told Harriet for writing Uncle Tom’s Cabin!

    The house is beautiful, they have done an amazing job with revitalizing the home to look like it did when Mark Twain lived there. They charge $18 and you can only go into the home on the tour. They don’t allow any pictures inside the home, but you can take them outside. The tour guide I had was full of great information about the home and life of Mark Twain. I gave it 3 stars however because you are only aloud one hour in the home with the guide. My tour guide was in a hurry to get us through the house and got irritated when people in the group wanted to take there time looking at different things in the home. At one point he got so irritated he said ” you go ahead and do your own tour because you are obviously not interested in what I have to say” . He then walked away throwing a tantrum like my 3 year old would. Just to clarify I was the youngest person on the tour at 35. After about 10 min of huffing and puffing and muttering under his breath he asked everyone if they would like him to continue with the tour. To sum it up if you are quit and listen, and follow quickly you will have a happy tour guide. I did enjoy the home and it’s rich history.

    My friend and I really enjoyed seeing the house today and were really looking forward to the tour–It is an amazing house in terms of architecture. We did the 1:30 tour with a man in his late 30s early 40s. He was not very talkative and we had to literally ask questions in most of the rooms to get him to give up information about the house and history. Very annoying. Other people in our group thought the same thing. He didn’t volunteer very much besides the architecture and very little basic history about Mark Twain. Too bad because we drove almost 3 hours today and were really looking forward to the tour. There is a display devoted to the servants that had nothing to do with the tour, that was excellent.
