Very informative Visitors Center with wonderful exhibits. Friendly and helpful staff. On the banks of the Missouri River the exterior views are great also. Worth the stop!

The two hour cavern tour was well worth seeing. Some pretty steep climbs both on the way up and within the cave. Would not recommend the tour to anyone who has mobility issues. The guide was very informative.
