Stopped here on the way through to VA, thought the kids would enjoy their first cave tour. The gift shop smells musty and the whole place could use a facelift. Looks dated. The tour begins with a short video explaining the caves, which was nice. The tour guide was very informative and well-spoken. My oldest (5) asked me several times... More

I'll keep it short because I'm leaving the area for the trip home now. This is a great place to visit. It wasn't crowded on a Saturday, the cave is awesome and there's reasonably priced food and fun stuff to do after the tour. You'll watch a ten minute outdated video about the history of the place and then begin... More

Today while driving home from Lancaster, I decided to check out the Crystal Caves. I love exploring the different caves and find them each unique. I called ahead to see if they were open and indeed they were! When I arrived there was lots of school groups getting ready to leave which was good for me. I was assigned to... More

We really enjoyed the tour. It is cool in the cave. I needed a sweater. This guided tour was informative and entertaining. I could have done without the movie in the beginning, but my husband didn't mind it.

This place has fascinating history, amazing cave sights, and lots more to do. They even have a totem pole. The small museum is full of local history, and the gift shop prices are very fair. The drive to the site is beautiful country, too.

Stopped here in early Spring and was not disappointed. The tour begins with a short movie that shares the history of the cave as well as the geologic science behind how it was formed. Our tour guide Terri then brought us into the cave. She was great: informative, personable, and interesting. The interior of the cave is very cool: literally... More

A little off the main road but this place is GREAT!! Prices are good and our tour guide was very helpful. There are lots of steps so you will be walking up and down stairs.

I visited this cave on the way home to NYC from Hamburg. It was a nice tour with a historical film included. You have to pay $12 to tour the cave. I felt the tour was too short for the fee. There are places to purchase souvenirs and food. Parking is plentiful and free.
