Historic Hartford

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.
