Mark Twain…America’s most beloved writer and one of its greatest social critics, built a whimsical and elegant mansion in the heart of Victorian Hartford.  Within these walls, Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens by birth) spun stories for his family, his guests, and for the novels that would become cherished the world over.  A National Historic Landmark, The Mark Twain House was recently selected one of the Ten Best Historic Houses in the World by National Geographic.

Visit his personal library with ornate stenciling by Louis Comfort Tiffany’s design firm, Associated Artists; his children’s room where they learned and played; and the famous Billiard Room where Twain worked on the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.  In our 33,000 square foot Museum Center, enjoy informative exhibitions or take in our Ken Burns documentary.
