They have 2 stores facing each other. We bought a few stones and artifacts. Quite pricey so be prepared. They do have nice things. Staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you are into gemstones and artifacts.

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.

This is your typical souvenir shop, however they have one thing that makes Big Mike's special, The Mystery House. Well worth a dollar to tour the Mystery House. It starts off kind of lame with a hall of old optical illusion posters, but when the rooms get wonky it gets really fun. Our 8-year old daughter said this was her... More

This place has a very nice selection of stones and gifts. The staff was very helpful. The "mystery house" was a little hokey but the grandchildren loved it. Recommend stopping when in the area.

Specimens outside are junk. Inside are the goodies but no bargains here. Good spread of specimens but you have barter hard to get a bargain. If money no problem then this is the place for you. Close to entrance of Mammoth Cave. The rest is a typical tourist trap.

More selection of T shirts, etc. than at Mammoth State Park. Rock shop was interesting and seemed to have a large selection if you are into rocks.
