We visited this cave just for something different to do in the Twin Cities. I was a bit ho-hum about going as the gangsters of the 1930's didn't really interest me at all. Was I ever wrong. We had an excellent tour guide and the information and history he told us was outstanding. It was not a long tour (about... More

I went on this tour not knowing what to expect. The tour was only $6 (cash only) and led by an energetic guide who knew a lot about the history of St. Paul, the caves, and the time of prohibition. The inside is actually a night club, which I wasn't expecting. Much of it is the original decor. The stories... More

What a neat place!! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and especially our guide, "Edna." Not only did we have her for the cave tour, but she was our guide on the Gangster bus tour. She was awesome and the trip went by so fast! We loved learning history in such a fun way! Looking forward to the October scary stories... More

Swing Nights (cover of $5) on Thursdays are so much fun! All ages and big bands... can't go wrong! The tours all depend on who you get as your guide, but are pretty interesting. Near Halloween they do traveling ghost tours as well!

The history of the caves including the use as growing mushrooms and visits by gangsters during prohibition was very interesting. The talk about "ghosts" and other mysteries was unnecessarily corny. The weak minded in our group even thought that they "saw or experienced" something! The history still made this a worthwhile side trip depending on how much time you have.

This unique bar and restaurant in caves was once a speakeasy where Dillinger hung out! The tour and mystery play are well done even if the dinner is a bit bland and unexceptional. This place is perfect for a group meeting or conference attendee event. Be sure to bring a sweater as cave can be cool. The salmon/ baked chicken... More

The tours are conducted by a fellow in a suit and hat of the period most talked about, the 'gangster' period of St Paul. He talks about the caves of course, and the formation, but everyone wants to know what went on when it was a speakeasy and the tours don't disappoint.

We opted for the traditional tour and really enjoyed it. The cave is full of gangster stories and a surprisingly rich history. A solid choice for 40 minutes of fun for a relatively small price with the pay off of a being a quintessential St. Paul attraction. Snoopy's sad state out front was the only drawback. It looks like a... More

Best lattes at coffee prices! Friendly cute coffee shop! But be mindful of the cave tours! ! The line gets long! But, they are quick to keep things moving. This cozy shop IS NOT open gas station hours... it more like extended McDonald's Breakfast hours!

We went on the general historic caves tour. It was very interesting and has a lot of wonderful history behind it. It also costs only $6 dollars a person for a 45 min tour. We are surely planing on going again some day for the ghost tour. The tour lady was very theatrical. :)
