This is a great spot for people who are interested in nature, history, and beautiful site seeing and hiking. My young kids loved and were fascinated by the cave! I am so glad we stopped.

We greatly enjoyed walking through the Museum and playing the animal sounds on our phone. It is very handicapped accessible and informative. Good for when it is raining in Cave City. Just about an hour at most stop though.

My boyfriend liked this place a whole more than I did...I would have given it a 3 rating, but would have given it more than that, so that's why I'm giving it a 4. There were some interesting exhibits.
