The basic tour was just enough, a bit of history of the caves and various uses and a brief history of the gangster activity. It was interesting to explore parts of the cave that aren't used in formal events. Money well spent for the history...More

We went here with a group of people. We had a tour of the cave. To me it was nothing with nothing. Better said, it was a waste of time and money. I don't necessarily recommend unless their show is better. Rating...bad

We went on this tour following the gangster bus tour. There was some overlap in the information but for 8 additional dollars for this tour, I would recommend doing both tours. Do bring a sweater, it gets quite cold in the caves.

We had the privilege of attending a gangster hospital fund raiser/party at the Wabasha Street Caves. It was fabulous, and I have to admit that the burlesque costume that I rented (with fascinator) was fabulous as well 💃 (the skirt was much shorter than this)...More

What a unique tour! The cave was impressively big. Parts were decorated for events such as weddings and reunions. The unfinished part was where the Speakeasy was and alcohol stored during prohibition. This space has gone through a number of iterations over the years and...More

The website shows hours that are incorrect. We tried to go this weekend and it was closed, disappointing.
