This was a very interesting tour. It is not a real cave but all man made caves. It was part of history of the area and the caves put to use a lot of ways. They have gangster tours if you prefer those, since gangsters were allowed to stay (protected) in the city if they did not break the laws.... More

I went to Wabasha Street Caves thinking it would be like most other caves I have been to, not that that's a bad thing. I was surprised to see this cave is very different. It may not be as pretty as the other caves, but what these lack in beauty, stalagtites and stalagmites, it makes up for with its stories... More

The history of the building is quite interesting. I dealt with the owner, I have to say she was rather rude during both conversations. From other reviews I have read this is kind of the norm for the staff.

The cave tour is an inexpensive 40 minute tour through some historical caves. The guide was friendly and the stories were interesting. It was a good way to spend an hour.

I was brought here for a track "practice" while in high school. One of my best experiences ever. They feature a live band with tutorial swing dancing. We've been back several times. This set the foundation for our couples dancing, I would now say we are above average. Great place to develop new or old skills!

Never been so had to check it out and was very interesting and enjoyed the story of the caves, glad they have been preserved and can be enjoyed. Tour is perfect length and not over whelming amount of information to take in.

I enjoyed the tour we had at this place. Very interesting. Good tour guide - funny, full of details, engaged his audience. Pacing of his explanation was very good. Worth seeing the caves and feel the cool temperature, and even see the drawings on the cave walls!

The tour was great! The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. She made the tour very interesting. She added anecdotes, she was ready to answer any questions we had. She explained the history of the caves. I really recommend this tour.
