We had a great time touring the caverns with our guide who pointed out lots of things we wouldn't have noticed and gave us lots of history of the cavern, which has been privately owned since its discovery. The gift shop and restrooms could use some serious updates, but I wasn't let down since the price is pretty reasonable.

We had a good time here. Its small but its perfect for kids. Staff was fun and friendly. Tour was about 1/2 long. Ask for Bob when you go, he's a blast!

What I viewed on the cavern's web site didn't give much of an impression. After reading AAA's short description of antique weapons, tropical garden & nature trail, decided a trip maybe worth the time. The antique weapons are civil war muskets, rifles & hand guns along with rocks, minerals & gems located in large glass cases. The tropical garden has... More

Some parts were cool but it was kind of boring, to be honest. It is also very cold in there so even if it's hot out bring a jacket! Tour guide was very knowledgable.

A visit to The Lost River Caverns will be very interesting and educational if you have never been inside a cave. This will be a great trip for the kiddies or the kid in you. The price for entry isn't too step and our tour guide was excellent. Photography will not be permitted in certain areas of the cave, but... More

Literally! A hidden Gem! You will find all kinds of gems and stones in their gift shop after you tour the cave! Always the perfect day trip with the kids!

The caves are an interesting place to stop on the drive up to school. The tour is very interesting and the people who work at the caverns are very knowledgable about the caves. Overall, good experience.

The exhibitions could use a nice dusting but the tour of the cave is informative and entertaining. My kids (nine and eleven) thoroughly enjoyed it.

Had a free day, decided to check out local attractions and this was nearby. Our tour guide Nate was very friendly and knowledgeable. A great presenter. The cavern was marvelous, loads of interesting features. Temperature is a steady 52 degrees so dress appropriately. Taller folks be prepared to duck often. An hour well spent. Afterwards the kitschy nature trail was... More
