8th Annual Ice Cream Social

The Mark Twain House & Museum invites everyone back for our 8th annual FREE Ice Cream Social on the Nook Farm Nook patio!

Come on down and enjoy delicious UCONN Ice Cream provided by BEAR'S BBQ Smokehouse, and finish it off with your favorite toppings!

In addition, music will be provided by HORIZON BLUE! 102.9 The Whale will also be here with games and give aways! And for the little ones we have face painting, games and arts & crafts!

The music for this event is generously supported by the Evelyn W. Preston Memorial Trust Fund, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee.

This is a FREE event!


On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, you can take a LIVING HISTORY HOUSE TOUR!


Thinking about an EXTRA special event? Here's a great idea: tour the Mark Twain House with someone who actually "lived" there! Our Living History Tours come to life in March. Take a tour with that sassy, brassy housemaid Lizzie Wills, or thoughtful lady's maid Katy Leary, or even Olivia Clemens herself. These historically accurate tours are unlike anything you've experienced here before! Be among the first to bring friends and family for an intimate behind-the-scenes look at "the loveliest home that ever was." Get a sneak preview HERE!
