Enjoy a tour of the Mark Twain House, a National Historic Landmark; a 2,000-square-foot gallery with rare manuscripts, photos, artifacts and fine and decorative arts never before on display. Admission is by guided tour only. The Mark Twain House & Museum also offers a wide range of educational programs, including lectures by major authors and artists, dramatic performances, concerts and \"family friendly\" activities.
Anyone interested in American Literature owes it to him/herself to visit this wonderful house. This is where many of Twain's most famous books were written, largely in the pilot-house shaped pool room on the third floor. The brick architecture is pretty nice too, though the interior has the usual Victorian darkness. Tour guide on our trip was excellent and vibrant. Great accompanying museum too.
If you visit, take in the Harriet Beecher Stowe house next door at the same time -- also highly recommended.
Being a teenager, I thought this was soooo boring. However it seemed like other adults liked it, so if you are by yourself without any children then it would be worthwhile for you. But if you do have kids with you, save them and you the trouble by not going. I lost my attention after the first room. But it should definitely be considered when traveling to Hartford as a "Thing to do".
