I went to Marengo Cave with my sister, niece, and nephews - they are from South Carolina. I enjoyed this trip so much I have always wished to return and see it all again and I may do that this summer! Beautiful, amazing, awe inspiring.

This is such a great activity to do, no matter the season. The tours are wonderful and so informative. Awesome history and always a cool 52° in the cave, even in winter. Our tour guide was great. If you are searching for a fun activity, this is it. Price isn't too bad. You can do both cave tours for $25/per... More

My 4-year-old son and I visited Marengo Cave as part of the four-site Indiana Cave Trail. In my opinion, this cave has everything that a privately-operated cave can offer to tourists. The visitors center is incredibly well-apportioned, with materials for cavers mixed in with jewelry, tourist knick-knacks, t-shirts and more. Cave tour tickets are sold in the visitors center, and...

We did both cave tours. Guides were very nice, too many noisy kids in our group though. They do demonstrate total darkness in the cave which was interesting.

Glad you stop by for both of our cave tours. It is neat when they show the total darkness in the Crystal Palace. It lets you see how much light the candles gave off when the two kids discover the cave. We have the best guides at Marengo Cave, they truly enjoy showing our cave.
