Home – Mark Twain House

Dear friends,

Due to the heightened Coronavirus numbers impacting our state and surrounding states, The Mark Twain House & Museum will be closing to the public effective Monday, November 16 and will remain closed at least through November 30. This decision was not made lightly, but the health and safety of our visitors and staff are paramount.

We were one of the first museums to safely re-open back in June and we are grateful for the support you have given us over the past five months.  Despite the reduced capacity of visitors on our tours, you came out in great numbers to show your appreciation of this historic home and the legacy of Mark Twain. We look forward to welcoming you back to the museum as soon as we feel the situation is safe enough to do so.

At this time, we ask for your continued support as we once again tread uncertain waters, you are our lifeline. Like every small business, we face serious obstacles and our ticket sales are a big part of our financial health. Please continue to join us in the virtual realm for…

Author events and Trouble at Home talks including our just-added author talk with British historical novelist Philippa Gregory (The Other Boleyn Girl).

Innovative education programming

Our 3-D house tour

Online holiday shopping, and more.

Please keep an eye on our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as our emails to learn more about upcoming programs and our touring status.

In the meantime, please take this opportunity to enjoy our virtual gala where you can take in views of the house, hear from our staff about why they enjoy working at the Twain House, and find out what our celebrity guests love most about Mark Twain and his magical home. We need and appreciate your donations, if you are able to support us through this troubling time.

Be safe and stay well,

Pieter Roos

Executive Director
