Talking Rocks CavernCurrently Closed
Man and Nature Came together very, very beautifully for this attraction. Nature provided the scintillating crystal formations, and man provided the light and sound show and the concrete infrastructure needed to appreciate them. Spelunking was one of the Ozark’s first tourist draws, and this cave, which has been in operation for over a hundred years. You have to go down more than 200 steps to see the formations. On the tour itself, you’ll be educated on the history of both the attraction and the geological forces that formed it.
Now, you can do much more than just visit the caves though. If you feel like shelling out the cash, get a bag of ‘mining rough’ from the gift shop at the mouth of cave, and from there on, head over to the sluicing trough, and learn how gems are mined.
There are also four different walking trails nearby, from easy to hard, all of which last less than an hour, and will take you by sights such as the Springhouse, the Lookout Tower, and the Waterfalls.
And finally, for a little extra cash, there’s mini-golf.
- USD 9.95 for 4-12 years old.
- Free for below three.
- Buy your tickets online. It’s cheaper.
- Mini-Golf: Adults $7 (with Cave Tour tickets $4).
- Children $4 (with Cave Tour tickets $2).

The staff was very friendly. The cave was really good. We were able to see a cave salamander and frog. It was one of the better caves that I have seen. Also we played mini golf and that was a lot of fun. The location had an area for small children to play and the kids had a great time.
Amazing staff! Everyone was so helpful & informative. Rad was our tour guide & he did such a great job! The cave was gorgeous! Will definitely be back soon!
Not a big cavern but a beautiful cavern! Takes about an hour for the tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide to walk you through. Thank you Chuck!!! You were awesome! A definite must see when your in Branson.
Such a wonderful place, and definitely worth the drive. You will not be disappointed. Over the years they have gone out of their way to create more for you to do outside of the cavern, but the cavern is definitely the highlight of the show. Make sure you prepare for lots of steps. You'll go down quite a few, and then you must come up those same stairs.
The formations in the cave were beautiful. My son especially enjoyed seeing where a bear had clawed the walls. The tour guide clearly cared about the cave and paid lots of personalized attention to us and the other guests.
