How anyone can give this mini gangster tour anything less than 5 stars must be pretty hard to please. The tour is $8 per person for a 45 minute informative and fun tour regarding the caves and how they were formed

Disappointing. We expected caves but this was far from it. The tour begins by stating these are mines, not caves. The tour guide was a bit obnoxious with many dry jokes. I didn't need to hear him say multiple times that he just said "poop"....More

The cave offers you a 45 minutes tour. First 3 caves are very modern and makes you think that you are inside a party hall.. However the history is quite creepy and the last cave actually takes you back to those old times

We went as a family and learned so much about Minnesota history! Would recommend to both those living in Minnesota and those visiting from other places.

Depends on the program they're doing and if the child would be scared of that program. They have several programs from the caves. I am now signing up for the Irish tour as I will be in Minneapolis in March. Loved the... More
