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.

Saw the sign on a return trip home and stopped. It was a really nice place and my 10 and 12 y.o. enjoyed it thoroughly. Was a bit pricey. Advise looking for a coupon beforehand.

Rude, harried staff members, huge tour groups (ours was 54 people)! Tour of the cave itself was very short - not much to see anyway. They do not allow public to view the crystal formations that they advertise in both their brochure and website! Check...More

I remember visiting here when I was a kid and decided to take my 12 year old niece here back in June. It's a nice place, but expensive and dated. $14 a person! The video they play before entering is very old and needs updating....More

We had a great tour guide in the cave, but some in our group felt a little claustrophobic. Bring a jacket - even if it's hot, the cave stays in the 50s. Skip the tour if you have trouble walking. It's was slippery and there...More
