Part of the Mark Twain tour but also could be skipped. Not much to see here unfortunately. Much potential could be had here but is vastly under utilized.
We were disappointed in the house because it did not tell us much about the way Becky lived on how her house might have looked when she lived there. It was more exhibits rather than a connected story. Didn't get much sense of who she was.
Your ticket for the Mark Twain Museum includes this house. But it has nothing really to show except for a few notes on the wall of 2 rooms, it's basically a gift shop. It was a duplex rental house and they don't even know which side Becky Thatcher lived.
There is not much to this place. a single room walk through. AS couple of things to look at but mainly a small shop and another place on the multi tour ticket
As noted in the other reviews, buy the combo package and see all of the Mark Twain sights. It does not take long, and all are worth seeing - even for a brief visit.

Learned quite a lot this trip. House is well kept and filled with great photos of the woman is became Becky Thatcher. Too bad it is not known which side of the house was actually hers, but that did not really detract from seeing it.
Mark Twain met Laura Hawkins when she moved into this house which was across the street from his home. She became the basis for Becky Thatcher in his writings. There aren't many rooms to visit in the house. However, it is part of the ticket that you can buy to tour various sites so we checked it out.
