Mark Twain House and Museum

Mark Twain, one of America's most celebrated writers, lived in this stately house on Farmington Avenue between 1874 and 1891. The elegant, 19-room mansion - built in a Victorian Gothic style - was where Twain wrote many of his most famous and successful works (including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), and has since been declared a National Historic Landmark. Visitors to the Mark Twain Museum Centre can anticipate a fascinating Ken Burns documentary detailing Twain's life and work, and state-of-the-art exhibition facilities. William Faulkner once called Mark Twain "the father of American literature" - and anyone with even a passing interest in American culture, would be ill-advised to pass up a visit to this significant, and memorable museum.
