A Great Place for Group Touring

We will not be able to serve bus tours or group tours in the near future but will be reevaluating often over the next few months. Please follow us on Facebook in order to learn more about when we will be opening our doors to parties larger than 10 and in-person field trips. If you have any additional questions please call 860-280-3130 or email us at grouptour@marktwainhouse.org.

The museum offers a wide range of virtual outreach programs for adult groups and virtual educational programs for students. All of these programs may be scheduled at any time.

Historic Hartford
Make a day of it in Hartford and visit three of the city’s cultural crown jewels, including The Mark Twain House & Museum, The Wadsworth Atheneum, and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center. Let us help you create a memorable experience, themed to match your group’s interests and showcasing the breadth of these museums. Your group will enjoy a cultural immersion that’s rich in history, literature, and art. Visit all three sites at the special reduced rate of $36/person.

 

To ensure our guests receive the best possible experience, the Mark Twain House is shown by guided tour only, with each lasting approximately 45-60 minutes. Large groups must be divided into smaller groups of no more than 14 for the house tour. Each tour is led by a trained historic interpreter and encompasses all three floors of the house.

The Museum Center is self-guided; it takes approximately 1 1/2 hours to view the orientation exhibit, introductory video, and our special exhibits. A visit to the Mark Twain Store completes your visit.

Box lunches, prepared for your arrival, are available for groups of 10 or more.

Please Note: Reservations and group rates are not available on the holiday weekends of Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
