See PA's first show cave. Discovered in 1871, and open to the public shortly thereafter, Crystal Cave has been operating without interruption since that time. The one hour cave tour begins with a video presentation describing the history of Crystal Cave and the formation of caves. Guides take you into the cave and give you both an educational and enjoyable tour. Crystal Cave is known for its abundance of formations in various size and color. Over five million adults and children have been thrilled by this subterranean museum of nature. After your tour you may want to visit our gift and souvenir shop, historical exhibit, authentic Amish Buggy, real Indian Totem Poles, and shaded picnic park all on 150 scenic acres. Other activities open seasonally include miniature golf, panning for gemstones, Ice Cream Parlor, Crystal Cave Cafe, and Museum.

This is a fault cave, meaning that at some time in the ancient past an earthquake broke the limestone apart and left a void underground. I enjoyed the guided tour. There is an extensive gift shop. The trip to get there through the beautiful Pennsylvania...More

Easy to get to with decent parking. The main attraction, the cave, is up several flights of steps on a steady incline. The guide did not seem interested in taking questions. He only asked for any at the very end by the exit. Dining on...More

We took our kids here, and now took grandkids here. The attraction involves a lot of walking and inclines, so those with mobility issues would have difficulty. The cave was cool, so bring a jacket or sweatshirt (even in the summer!). We did the putt-putt,...More
