To purchase tickets or a membership, enter through the Museum Center adjacent to the main parking lot or through the patio entrance off our Forest Street parking lot.
The Main House Tour takes 45 to 60 minutes, but we suggest you leave about two hours for your entire visit so you have time to see the film, Mark Twain, by Ken Burns and our exhibits.
To ensure an optimum experience, main house tours are limited to 16 people, first come, first served. If your group has more than 10 people, please call (860) 280-3130 or fill out our online group tours form to reserve a discounted Group Tour in advance of your visit. Unfortunately, we do not make reservations for groups of fewer than 10 people.
For the preservation of our collection and comfort of our visitors we cannot allow any kind of photography inside the historic Mark Twain House. We also ask visitors to turn off cell phones while on the guided tour. Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to take photos around the outside of the house. Reporters and film crews can make special arrangements by contacting our publicist:
