  • Beautiful, well-preserved formations. Pretty large cave, very easily accessible because the floor is paved, and there are stairs with a railing. Also, everything is well lit. The lamps, stairs, and paved walkway do make you feel less of an explorer though.
  • I love cave of the mounds! It's a magical place and have been coming since I was a kid. Greta place to have a picnic and enjoy SW Wisconsin.
  • Neat little spot. The tour takes about an hour but it goes by quick. Lots of very cool cave structures to see. Gets a little claustrophobic at some points but just once or twice. There are two gift shops and the main building has a bathroom. The building connected to the cave entrance has a little mining set up for the kids. It was pricy and there were a lot of bees all around. Nonetheless, my family and I had a great time.
  • This is one of those "you have to go at least once" kind of places. Great tour (a bit pricey for the whole family). The grounds are very nice. You can walk through gardens and they have a picnic area.
  • It's a place you go as a kid when uou grow up in this area and it was cool. I just went again with my 9 year olds class field trip and it was even more amazing now that I understand geology.
