Just visited for the first time yesterday with my husband and kids and it's such an amazing place, when you pay for your tour they give you a map which explains what each area is, we took the self guided tour and used the map to learn about the different chambers throughout the caverns, they are really beautiful, there are...

We visited the caverns on a recent trip to Columbus. We visited with our three children. They thought is was very interesting. The caverns aren't huge, but big enough to spend an hour or so down there. We visited during a time they didn't offer "guided tours", but you can still do a self guided tour. Call ahead if you...

We stopped here to break up the drive on our summer road trip. We stopped on a Wednesday at 12:40, and the next cave tour wasn't going to be until 1:50. We couldn't do a self-guided tour either because they started at 4:00. The person working suggested that we do one of the activities while we waited, but it was... More

We made our first visit to Olentangy Indian Caverns today and we had a blast!!. The cave tour was really interesting and our guide did an excellent job fielding all of my son's questions. The gem mining was the hit of the trip, the kids LOVED it.

We stopped here on a trip and it was very interesting. The signage from the road is not the best. It kind of sneaks up on you and at first I was a little confused because there was a big house, but once we figured out where we were going we made it there. The price to go into the... More

Have have been here a few times in my youth on school field trips in the past. I remember having fun but going as a adult and taking my wife and son was a good experience. This place has a lot of history and you can learn a lot about the native Indians that use to call central Ohio home.... More

THE Olentangy Indian Caverns are an interesting destination if you have not been in a cave before. there is some indian activity indicated by the owners of the cavern and I found an arrowhead less than a mile from the caverns, if you look around the -property they have various areas of interestl

Spent a wonderful hot Summer day visiting the caverns with my husband and children (12 and 15). The guide was very knowledgeable and the caverns were interesting. I would not recommend this tour to anyone with children under 5 years old or people with mobility issues as there are steep staircases and the ground is slippery.

I've been to much more impressive caverns. Thank being said it might be worth the trip if you have small children. But for two adults it was kind of lame and disappointing.
