A small yet unique cavern. Our guide, Alex, was very well educated in the history and knowledge of the cavern. Great place to learn about caves.

My daughter loves coming even in the winter so we can just walk around the upstairs free museum and the lower level store. Its a great place to come for all kinds of reasons. A must for all families, explorers and nature lovers. Don't forget to check out the very well priced store if you like rocks.

I visited this cave after being at Ringing Rocks park nearby for something else to do as we had driven to Bucks county for the days. This is very reasonable and was a pleasant hour of which 45 minutes was the tour. We had a young but very informed guide that answered all our questions and all the questions of... More

I always love a good cave tour, or even an awkward cave tour. This one was just a little on the awkward side but still totally worth it. I always learn something, and it's always intriguing to visit something that was unseen and pitch dark for millions of years. This is worth seeing if you're in the area. Not the... More

Small in size but guides will spend enough time to explain and answer questions. Even on winter it is 52F - great right?

Recently went on the tour with some friends. I read some of the reviews and they are all over the place. Therefore I will try to explain what I think the tour is and is not. This is not a huge cave. It is NOT Howe Caverns nor Mammoth cave (I have been to both). I would not drive hundreds... More

The water level was lower than they usually experience however it was still much deeper than it appeared. What looked like 12-18 inches deep was really over 30 feet . Because you were able to see your reflection in the water it looked shallow. The gift shop was really great . I bought myself a 14 carrat gold with genuine... More

Absolutely awesome experience. Nate was very well informed and a perfect guide. You can't beat the experience for the price and the gift shop was one of the most reasonable I've ever been in. A must if you're in the area
