This is an okay cave if you've never been to one before, but there are not a lot of formations. The guide was obviously summer help and seemed to get her 1800's and 1900's dates confused. Best part was the explanation of the water running through the cave and how they tried to discover its origin and where it flows... More

We have been to several caverns before and enjoy the visits, as we did this one. The tour takes about 45 minutes and the guide was very friendly and informative. There is a constant temperature of about 53 degrees in the cave so it was nice for a summer day. I thought the price was reasonable. The gift shop is... More

It was a nice visit and tour. Our guide was informative. I'd recommend it if you haven't seen a cave / cavern before.

If you've never been to a cave before, this may be ok. For us, we've been to some great ones so this was very disappointing. I should have looked for something else to do in the area.

Had my 10 and 14 year old for the week, and scheduled something each day to do with them. One day we went here, and I was not sure how the 14 year old would like it, but both kids loved it. 40 mins inexpensive tour in a small group of like 12 people was very informative by the guide... More

Not much has changed in the cave in the last 50 years. (I guess you could say the same about the last few thousand years.) But it's still a great experience for anyone who hasn't been in a cave, or who enjoys visiting new caves. Kids love the gift shop, too. There is also an interesting collection of antique and...

We visited last week, 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 3 school-age kids and a toddler, and we all learned a lot and had fun. The caverns were discovered during blasting in a limestone quarry back in the late 1800s. The land and caverns were purchased in 1929 by the Gilman family which still owns it. Lights, paths, handrails, and pump were... More

We had a very informative guide who taught us lots. Great tour. We had fun. The museum associated was a little cheesy. Remember your jackets.

This small, low-key cavern has an interesting story and offers a fun tour. If you don't like low ceilings and narrow spaces it isn't the place to go, but our group found the tour fascinating. It is a walking tour mostly on a paved surface, with a few narrow spots but plenty of hand rails and no uncomfortable bits -... More
