This bronze statue is beautiful. The setting is perfect. The faces on the boys are so lifelike that you can actually get a sense of their personalities. A look of mischief and innocence all at the same time. My photo of this statue will go...More

What a beautiful structure to remember Tom and Huck's fun times. This bronze sculpture captures the essence of the young boys' fun adventures. We climbed atop the structure and felt like part of the fun while taking photos.

A representation is Tom and Huck. To the left of the statue are 244 very steep stairs that lead to an amazing view of the river and a small light house.

We arrived at Hannibal late afternoon and the museum was closed already. Fortunately the statues are easy to find and no need to pay anything.
