  • We went to Mammoth Cave first to buy tour tickets and then had an hour to kill before our tour, so we decided to drive over to Big Mike's. We enjoyed the quirky Mystery House and for the price (a coup...  more »

  • Really fun stop! Picked up a couple of really cool rocks and only spent about five dollars! There is a giant dinosaur-like creature outside named “Big Moe” who is fun to take pictures with. There is also a Mystery House Tour inside. Definitely worth checking out!
  • The selection was amazing...two buildings and an outside area filled with rocks and gifts of all types. I thought the pricing was very reasonable as well and plenty of parking. The collection of rocks for both indoor and outdoor was incredibly varied with rocks from all over the world.
  • Nice gift shop with wide variety of items. The Mystery Tour is really cheap and for the money you can't beat it. If you stop by, you have to do it. We took my uncle from Boston when he was in town. He loved it and tells everyone about how much fun it was.
  • I've shopped here since my childhood. I knew Big Mike and he was so kind and generous to me. Even all these years later, it's a worthy adventure on the way to Mammoth Cave National Park and other tourist attractions in the area. Even the locals go here often! See many unique and affordable gifts, a real dinosaur skull beautiful rocks and minerals and a few surprises you won't find anywhere.
  • Lots of crystals rocks and knowledge. Beautiful wire wrapped jewelry as well. I have been going there for years!.
