Jim's Journey: The Huck Finn Freedom Center
Jim's Journey: The Huck Finn Freedom Center is Hannibal’s newest museum, this African American history museum gives dignity to Hannibal’s nameless, invisible ancestors who labored as slaves for nearly 50 years in our community. This Northeast Missouri's African American history museum is the country's only memorial to Jim, Huck Finn's friend and companion in The 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 Jim (aka Daniel Quarles), African-Americans in Twain's life/writings and the struggles and contributions of African-American residents in America's Hometown. Admission: free. Open June 1st-Labor Day.
