Jim's Journey: The Huck Finn Freedom Center is Hannibal's newest museum. This Northeast Missouri African American history museum is also the country's only memorial to Jim, Huck Finn's friend and companion in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Visitors will learn about Twain, the humanitarian who used satire and humor to undermine racism in his literature and his actions. This collection of artifacts, photographs, and memorabilia tell the story of Daniel Quarles aka Jim and the other African Americans in Twain's life/writings. 

This African American history museum gives dignity to Hannibal's nameless, invisible ancestors who labored as slaves for more than 50 years in our community. Learn more about the struggles and contributions of African American residents in "America's Hometown."
