We were very fortunate to join a tour conducted by an actor dressed in period attire speaking in the style of the era. She was a young lady named Olivia, 17 years old and almost a lookalike of Susan Olivia Clemens, the eldest daughter of Mark Twain. She asked all of us our names and then took us through an hour long tour of the house and related to us the story of her life growing up with her Papa, Mama and two younger sisters. We were mesmerized as if travelling back almost 150 years in time visiting Mark Twain and his family. Just for fun, I told her that I was a friend and fan of her Papa. I related to her some of the anecdotes I knew about Mark Twain. It was a fun visit. I have never had such a surreal visit to the home of a famous personality from more than a century ago. The feelings and emotion are still fresh in my mind.

Thanks to Olivia (in the role of Susan Olivia Clemens) for hosting our visit and sharing the story of your family - especially your Papa Mark Twain. Thanks also for your calligraphed note!<3

The Mark Twain House in Hartford is a fascinating place to visit, with unique architecture and hand-stenciled wall designs. We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, but discouraged questions, which was too bad. Photos are not allowed to be taken inside the house itself. The entrance fee is kind of pricey, but there are a few discounts available. There is a cafe at the museum, but we didn’t eat there.

Our tour, ably conducted by Beth, was well-paced, interesting, chock-full of fascinating details about the Clemenses, their lives, tribulations and travels. Beth has an encyclopedic knowledge of the family and the house, and answered in detail every question from our group. The house is meticulously maintained and gorgeously decorated but is, at the same time, a comfortable family home.
Since we live in Elmira, NY, we suggested to Beth that she visit there to understand the other place where Samuel Clemens lived and wrote. I forgot to suggest to her she take a Trolley Tour sponsored by the Elmira History Museum during the summer, which focuses heavily on Twain, as well as Elmira’s role in the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, the notorious POW camp and on John Jones, the emancipated slave who became the army’s sexton and gave dignified burials to Union and Confederate soldiers alike. John Jones is buried in the same beautiful cemetery where Mark Twain and his family rest. The John Jones House is open for tours in Elmira.
All docents at the Mark Twain House in Hartford would benefit from seeing the Elmira side of Twain’s life!
This was the best house/history tour we’ve ever taken, thanks to Beth’s knowledge, humor and energy.

They only offer guided tours and don't give you time to look around, pushing everyone to keep pace with the guide. The house is mildewed, pungent smell of mold coming at you upon entry. Immediately gave my husband and I an allergy headache so bad we had to leave before seeing 3 rooms. No photography at all. We got more from the free museum area that showed his life and books than the house. I hope they use the funds we spent to clean the place since I couldn't get a refund.

If you know nothing about Mark Twain, don't worry... there's an exhibit to walk through that will give you a nice overview of America's premiere humorist who likely is the father of true American literature. If you've read his works, you'll have an even better time seeing some of the environs where he arguably had the best 17 years of his life and career.

The home and museum are impressive. The tour is well worth taking. Our guide (Beth) was knowledgeable, thorough, and accommodating. The details provided by the tour and from just gazing at the ceiling are amazing.

Be prepared for some stairs (the home has a second and third floor), low banisters, and low lighting (it is kept at levels thought to be consistent with the time period in which Twain resided there. Also, be prepared for the rules: Don't touch anything, the group has to stay together in the same room, and no photographs. A word to the wise: silence your phone for about a 1/2 hour and leave it in your pocket. You don't need it, you can't use it, and there's a great deal to take in with your eyes and ears. Rest assured, there are books and postcards if you need photographic evidence of the interior.

The museum has a second exhibit, which changes periodically but is of equal interest. There is also a 20-minute movie on Twain's life. It's probably the one thing you could skip if pressed for time. It's good, but you get what you need from the tour and the exhibits.

Check the website for interesting cultural events, such as book debuts/talks, lawn parties, and late-night tours. They even put on plays as Twain's children did long ago.

It is worth a visit when in Hartford or the surrounding areas!

We bought tickets right before a tour started. We didn't want to wait another hour and a half for the tour with the actor, but it did look fun. Al was our guide. He was knowledgeable and tried to be engaging with the four members of our group. Photography is not allowed inside the home. We toured the house and the galleries in the museum in under two hours.

We took the Living History Tour with Olivia as our guide back to the late 1880s. She was excellent as Susie, the eldest daughter of Samuel Clemons. Her presentation was very lively and included both a selection on the piano and a vocal rendition. We highly recommend this tour.

I was in Springfield, MA for NCAA hockey games on Thursday and Saturday, so decided to spend Friday in Hartford (only 26 miles south). Being a great fan of Mark Twain, I searched for the House. A search made somewhat difficult by a lack of signage except right at the property.

Directed to the ample parking, I was somewhat surprised to find it considerably below the grade level of the museum and house. As I can have difficulty with stairs I was a little put off, but the stairs were pretty low-rise with good handrails. Later I observed there was an unobtrusive ramp to one side. While the Museum makes every effort to be accessible, the House itself has a lot of stairs, with no apparent alternative.

I signed up for the next tour and while I was waiting perused the first floor gallery of exhibits. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and witty.

The House itself has been spectaculary restored after a history of varied occupants. Architecturally it is a late Victorian gem by Edward Tuckerman Potter, with a stairway atrium rising through all three stories. Interior decoration by Tiffany and Candace Wheeler is stunning. The artifacts inside are a combination of actual Twain belongings and period pieces. When queried, the guide ably distinguished which prices were originals. The Clemens were widely traveled and the house is full of curios. I learned a lot about the Clemens and their trials and tribulations. Alas, no photos were allowed inside either the House or the Museum.

After the tour, I walked through the museum's second-level galleries, full of Twain memorabilia and learned a great deal more about their lives.

Joseph Twitchell is a remarkable actor who did a fantastic job in our Living Tours. Book in advance as this living tour experience with an actor as your guide is a one of a kind, takes you back to 1903. The story telling is captivating and adds to the overall experience. The house itself is beautifully preserved and magnificently designed. The wallpapers alone and furniture are a feast to the eye. Had a great time. The Nook Cafe has lovely staff and good Zuchini Bread.

Our tour guide, Julia, a college student, gave an amazing tour - clear narrative,
balancing the glories and the tragedies and graciously addressing all our questions. The house is wonderful and her guiding made it even more special.
