The attraction is now run by the grandson/son of the owners since our first visit years ago. He is... read more

This is a very nice private museum, florescent mineral, and gift shop in one cool place.high quality and lower prices is the norm for the gift shop. The florescent mineral display in the largest I have ever seen. The museum is a nice combination of Indian and early settlement artifacts. Fun...

Don't make a special trip to this cave - if your passing through do stop it's five bucks and has some great collections of rocks, dinosaur bones, indian items. The caretaker was quite nice but rather robotic in her presentation before entering . We did come by earlier and the cave was not open on time but we grabbed something to eat in the nearby town and came back. Some of the rock collections lights were out so we were unable to view them as that portion of the cave is very very dark. The stop took about 40 minutes. Neat mom and pop place

Cool cave and the history is pretty neat. The owners son in law told us about the history which was nice. There is a gift shop but most of the gifts are NOT made in USA.

This place isn't a cave on the scale of, say, Carlbad Caverns, or anything close to that. The "attraction" isn't the cave itself, but rather the eclectic collection of stuff inside. It is a family owned and operated cave that was reclaimed by the original owner and converted to a saloon and dancehall before becoming an attraction. The saloon section contains a handmade bar, native American artifacts, and other collections of "stuff". There are displays of dinosaur prints collected elsewhere and brought in for display, glow-in-the-dark minerals collected by the owner and his wife, and a large well-stocked gift shop. What really sets this place apart is that you are likely to be greeted by one of the family members. We were guided by the original owner's granddaughter (an adult, not a little kid) and she couldn't have been more delightful. Her loving portrayal of her grandfather and his collections was quite endearing and made the whole stop worthwhile. Her cousin (I think) working in the gift shop was equally friendly and a wealth of information. This isn't a strictly guided tour. You are mostly left on your own, but the guides will intercept you at certain points to tell you more history or answer questions. They aren't pushy at all, so if you aren't interested they won't force you to listen, but you'll be missing out on the best part of your visit.

I wasn't expecting much from this stop, but I was pleasantly surprised and felt it was well worth the $5.00 admission charge. I do think your enjoyment will depend on who is there to give you information and history, but if everyone else is half as pleasant as the two young women who were there during my visit, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. However, it isn't a blockbuster attraction, so don't go out of your way to visit. But, do stop if you are passing through. An hour is more than enough time to see everything.
