We’re sad that students can’t come visit us at The Mark Twain House & Museum at the moment, but with the resources on this page, they can take a virtual field trip to learn about Twain’s writing, home, and life in Hartford.
In addition to our 3D virtual tour of the home, we’ve provided a variety of educational materials and activities, including adapted versions of some of the programs we do with students when they visit us at the museum, and some games that are silly enough to make Sam Clemens laugh!
Catching Up With The Clemenses
What was it like to live and work in a Gilded Age home like this? And how do we take care of that home and tell its stories today? In our ongoing “Catching Up With The Clemenses” series, School Programs Coordinator Erin Bartram and Director of Collections Jodi DeBruyne take you inside the home to answer these questions and more. You can even email us or write us a letter with your own question! Check out the details at the end of each video to find out how.
