Age is mind over matter, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter. (Mark Twain)
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow. (Mark Twain)
Photos taken on our driving trip to Branson Missouri in 2008.
The most notable reason to visit Hannibal is Mark Twain. The town is very proud of its relationship with him and has preserved many of the buildings. There are other reasons as well to visit and I'll post about those separately.
Museum properties includes eight properties: six properties are on the National Register of Historic Places, and two exciting, interactive museums whose collections include fifteen original Norman Rockwell paintings, Mark Twain's Oxford gown, and many priceless artifacts. A self-guided tour of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home Museum properties gives you the chance to explore the Hannibal of Samuel Clemens' childhood and experience the beloved stories he created as Mark Twain through the power of his imagination.
What an awesome place! I'd love to see that.ReplyDelete

I loved Missouri! We spent 2 weeks there a couple of years ago. 1 week in Branson and the a week in Clarksville.ReplyDelete

That's fascinating to see where he lived. I really don't know much about him, although I love his writing.ReplyDelete
I do love me some Mark Twain, especially his funny stuff — the man could spin one heck of a funny story.ReplyDelete
Here's my Saturday Snapshot for the week. Warning: May cause hunger pangs. :)
I would love to visit this place at some time. I haven't read everything by Mark Twain, but certainly like what I have read.ReplyDelete
It's always interesting to visit author museums. I've never read any Twain! One day I need to fix that.ReplyDelete
I love Twain! Thanks for the vicarious tour--I might have to visit here someday.ReplyDelete
I have Twain's The Innocents Abroad and re-read it every now and then - not just for the humour but for his insights into people.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful exhibit! Mark Twain was such a fabulous author.ReplyDelete
It looks like a great experience!ReplyDelete
Wow, interesting and notable. Enjoyed your post♫ReplyDelete
Hi! I just finished Gone Girl in which Hannibal figures quite importantly. Quite an exciting read. I would love to visit the real place someday.ReplyDelete
That would be such a fun place to visit!ReplyDelete
What an interesting place! It would be fun to take our Grandlittles there!ReplyDelete
I am having a hard time finding your link for the letter 'I', but I wanted you to know I had stopped by and tried!
These are terrific pics.ReplyDelete
Having recently read Tom Sawyer [I have yet to read Huck Finn, or the other Twain writings...] I would so LOVE to see this exhibit!
And you have helped me do so, here!
