The pros: Lots of good formations, easy walking for little ones, informative and friendly guide. An interesting story of the discovery by miners in the late 1800s. Something fun and educational to do with the family. The cons: not everything is not a natural cave, some of it was dug by the miners looking for lead. It's dimly lit and... 更多

Three isn't bad, it's average. This was a good fit for our family with young kids for a short cave experience. Shout out to Will, who did a nice job as guide.

Remember to wear a light jacket as temp is always 52 degrees in cave. Also water friendly shoes are a must as some areas had small pools of water we had to walk through. Tour lasted about 45 min. Guide was very knowledgeable and had nice fun personality.

Completely surprised when we found brochure about caverns at out hotel. It is just the right size for a brief break from hiking. Must be able to go up/down a staircase into cavern. Some puddles inside depending on outside weather so don't wear Sunday best or new tennis! Privately owned, maybe a bit overpriced.
A bit tight in places and not for anyone who is challenged on foot, because spaces can be a little difficult to navigate. But a nice little cave, staffed by very nice employees. Cool little gift/rock shop.
Took girls 4 and 9 to the Cave on a rainy day during a Galena trip. The tour is ~ 40 minutes long and was interesting. The kids loved it. There were some tight squeezes and some necessary ducking in some of the smaller passageways. Overall I was pleasantly surprised! Pretty formations, easy day trip from Galena, Kids had a... 更多
