Yes, there is a stuffed giraffe inside. This place is like a step back in time. Cavern is very interesting, but go for the whole experience.

Need. A quick day trip this is it.. Expect lots of oohs and aha from the kids with this trip.. Fairly inexpensive for a day trip not to much food to buy, best pack lunches and save them money.

This is a nice little local attraction. Would not recommend making a very long journey for it (as the tour was only about 30 minutes), but if you are in the area it is a nice little piece of history to check out.... Not a huge operation and is kind of run down, but has been in the same family... More

In the middle of nowhere, kinda, we stopped for a visit. We saw the billboards on our way from New Hope to Bethleham so it was not out of the way. We had a blast! The tour guide was helpful and the store was full of unique gifts, great souvenirs and plenty of toys for kids- that are unique. The... More

We stopped on our way back from visiting Dorney Park, it was about a 20 minute detour. We weren't sure what to expect, but found the cavern interesting. They had some cool rock formations and interesting things to see. My 9 year olds found it interesting and asked a lot of questions. The tour takes around 35-40 minutes and was... More

We surprised our kids with visiting the caverns. It's a small cave and a short tour, but a great way to introduce children to exploring caves and caverns.

We were here on a 100+ degree day and couldn't have been happier with our choice of activity. We found the tour interesting and informative. The gift shop and displays of artifacts are worth spending time looking over. I wouldn't drive miles for this attraction, but it is well worth a detour. There is also a hiking trail which we...

You can't beat natural air conditioning on a hot summer day! As others noted, may want to bring a coat or sweater. Tour was perfect length for our kids age 5-10, kept their interest. Tour guide did nice job. Entrance/gift shop at first glance reminds of those typical tourist trap kind of places, but you may find some hidden treasures.... More
