Went to Big Mike's after reading reviews to check out the Mystery House. Definitely worth the $1 per person. Fun little tour lasts 15 minutes maybe. Staff was funny, your usual souvenirs from the area were available. Prices reasonable. My husband and I got a kick out of the mystery house as well as the kids- ages 4, 6, 7,... More

When you visit Cave City, you realize that tourism has put many people out of business. I was told that the owner died early this year, but everything was up to par in my opinion. Please go through the mystery house. It was so much fun with my 7 y/o. It costs a dollar and is totally worth the stop!!

We daughter loves rocks and she really enjoyed the collection at Big Mike's. First day we were late and by the time we were done with shopping the Mystery House was closed for the day. We made sure that we come the following day after our Mammoth cave tours, it was well worth it. For $1 per person it well... More

It's worth a quick stop! The mystery tour/house was part what you'd make it and partly lots of fun. And great value! We could've gotten lost in the souvenir shop—so many bits and bobs. And MASSIVE range of t-shirts with local attractions printed on them.

This is a nice little store. So much in one place. We went there because someone told us to go take the little $1 tour of "odd things" it was cute and worth the $1. Bought several items for family. Very nice people.
