  • Well worth going to see, interesting history about the caves and all the names written on the walls from past to present. 
  • Great way to spend 2 hours wondering around the caves we even saw an actual bat staff were friendly and helpful well worth a visit 
  • Really good fun but a little on the pricey side. Definitely worth a trip. I would take anyone younger than 6 as it's very dark and a little scary for them 
  • Marvelous caves, sadly poor service from the staff who were either absent or chasing us out turning displays off (we were there an hour and a half before closing and made it out well before then). Displays leave much to be desired and desperately need a revamp. Didn't even get to see the fabled ball room. Overall, poorly lit, poor signage and high prices (even at concession rates).
  • It was quite ok. The atmosphere was nice and the exhibition was quite informative. Though, it was quite expensive for what you get. There were fun games for kids, so I'll still recommend it.
  • Worth a visit, lots of information and a few interactive displays for the younger ones. Great spooky atmosphere in certain areas of the caves.
  • Its was ok my five year old was abit scared and my 14 month old was very restless as we couldn't take a pram down there. I think its best suited for older kids and people interested in the history of the caves.
  • As most of the reviews say, it's a little expensive for what you get but worth a visit and my 9 yr old enjoyed it. Friendly staff...
