I was disappointed after taking the self-guided tour. Many of the buttons for the displays did not work. Also the caves had been badly damaged through the years, including graffiti. The rock formations, like bacon, stalactites and stalagmites had been removed. Given that, there was no problem letting kids and adults wander unsupervised. The history of the site was also... More

For our one year anniversary we decided to visit the Olentangy Indian Caverns! I always saw the sign, and we finally explored the attraction! This is great for little kids and families, but we are in our mid-twenties and had a blast! We signed up for a cavern tour (in the tour season but it's probably even better to go... More

Our guide Josh was personable and related historic and geological facts making for a fun and interesting tour. The coolness of the caverns was a welcome relief to outdoor or nature walks in the mid-summer heat. The small museum housed many artifacts either found on-site or nearby. The gift shop offered a variety of fun items at reasonable prices. We... More

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
