Mark Twain House and Museum

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 ), 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.
