About
The Cave House in a landmark in Tulsa. It was built in 1924, as a Chicken Restaurant. Built during prohibition, it was a place you could quench your thirst! It not only has quirky architecture, but it probably best known for its stories, full of interesting and sometimes amusing information. It is a great date, or family adventure, and as the owner I love to share it! It is best to call, or message ahead, as I do not have regular hours. Due to scheduling for private tours and groups, and because travelers request all days and times, I try to schedule according to requests as best as I can. The cost is $15.00 for ages 16yr. and older. Ages 15yr and younger are $7.50

If you’re in the mood for some extreme Tulsa tales in a quirky setting, look no further. Linda (the owner) engages you from the moment you walk in the door and is probably one of the best storytellers I have ever met in my life. One tale even made my arm hairs stand on end! I believe our tour was about 60-90 minutes for $20/person. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.

One of the most unique experiences we’ve had as tourists! The Cave House is so unique but not as unique as it’s owner, Linda. She will keep you engaged with stories of past residents, old photos of Tulsa and it’s famous residents with connections to the Cave House.
Don’t miss this tour when you come through or as a local. Lots of great info.

This is a very unique house with a lot of stories to be told. The beginning of the tour is just sitting in the living room listening to stories, so if you have small children, they might get bored. Luckily the owner offered my kids some bubbles to play with! The house is small and filled with a lot of items, so be mindful with small children that might want to touch everything! The stairs to the upper floor made me very nervous getting my kids up and down them, but the owner has installed several hand rails to help. It was still quite the challenge to maneuver the stairs while holding my 23 month old in my arms. There is space for about 2 cars to park on the property, otherwise, you would have to park across the street at the park. Overall, it is a very unique house to see!

Add this as a must do to your Tulsa bucket list! Such interesting prohibition era history. Linda, the owner, was a fantastic story teller and guide. I took my two teenagers and senior mother. My teenagers enjoyed the stories and looking at the quirky collections inside. We even got my 77 year old mother to join in the fun and climb up the indoor slide. Make sure you stop at a restroom before your visit.

My wife and I couldn't believe the Rich American History behind such a seemingly small roadside attraction! Linda's warm and welcoming presence took us offguard for her vast knowledge of Oklahoma and the Prohibition Era. Everything about this attraction completly blew us out of the water! In an hour, Linda took us into a storybook of detail about the crazy owners of the cave house over the years dating back to when it was a speakeasy for bootleggers. This place is a must book tour for visiting Tulsa!

Nice little place to kill some time. Ms linda gives a good account of the history of the house as well as pictures and momentos of days gone by. Take the extra keys off your key ring and leave them her for the ghost. Thats right i said ghost.

I was dragged to it by my mom. I was expecting it to be dumb but it was a very fun and enjoyable. The tour guide/owner Linda was amazing and made the visit very fun and had a funny quirky story for just about everything there. I would say one of my favorite parts was a slide that's in the house. It's just a very fun time.

Linda's history and stories about the house make it all the more fun and interesting. It's definitely not something you'd see every day and I highly recommend a visit. My 9 year old grandson really enjoyed it too. There's just so much to see and take in.

I love "road side" attractions and the Tulsa Cave House is one of the coolest places I've ever visited. Linda is a great host and storyteller and made the house's history come to life. Highly recommend a visit.

We decided to take a day trip from OKC to Tulsa. One of the places we visited was The Cave House. It was such a fun adventure. Linda is amazing and knew so much about the history of the house and surrounding area. I would recommend this historical site to anyone visiting Tulsa! Go to this house!!
