This is a real gem. A beautiful cave that is highly populated with various cave formations. We took both tours and each are an easy walk. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. Caleb and Taylor were exceptionally good and made it a great experience. Would love to see a haunted tour available.

Nice drive to the cave. Great people in the gift shop/ticket area. Great tour guide! Easy walk if you have bad knees. Steps in are the worst part coming and goin. But very enjoyable. The Grand kids loved their first cave tour.

I'm at a loss for words for Marengo Cave, and I have a big mouth. It was absolutely amazing and breathtaking. It's only 52° in the cave so bring a sweatshirt. Young and old I would recommend coming here.

It was neat to see and a memorable experience but crazy to cost $40 for our family of 4. I wish it was more reasonable.

I visited Marengo in the 90's and took my daughter there last weekend. The geological information is very interesting, probably more data than little kids would care about. While the overall cave is fascinating and can be covered in a one-hour tour, I really enjoyed how the facility had wired dramatic situated spotlighting on the formations. (We go places to... More

Thanks for the 5* rating. We love having parents that came as a child come back with their children. Our goal is to keep the Marengo Cave protected as much as possible.

Had a great time! We opted for the short tour and we wish we would have chosen both. Very fascinating and our tour guide was awesome. Only advice I have is you might bring a jacket as it was a little cool.
