Marengo Cave is one of the major attractions in the United States. It is a private cave and is open to the visitors all year around. This cave was discovered by two school children in the eighties, after which it was opened for the common people. Visits to the cave are allowed on a group basis, due to security reasons. The cave is full of beautiful carvings to have a glance on. Also remember to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, as the temperature inside the Marengo Cave is quite low. It is a great place for students, as they will get to learn about different types of rocks and its formation. Apart from this, the staffs here are also helpful to guide you through on your tour.

Marengo Cave National Landmark Reviews & Ratings
This was amazing trip. Took a beautiful ride in the Harley to visit this awesome place. There is two different tours. I paid $28 to take both tours which took a few hours to complete. There is several sections that you can visit. Our tour guide was very informative and was able to answer a lot of questions. There is a cute little restaurant just outside of the entrance that had great food and will give you the feel of being at grandmas for dinner.
Very nice cave tours, we went on the combo tour, so we got to walk both cave tours. Our guide Kate was nice and professional while people took their photos. Definitely worth the 2:00hr and 20 min drive from Indianapolis. The caves were nice and cool and had amazing views. I definitely would recommend to buy the tickets ahead of time, they are actually cheaper, I paid 66 online but if I had bought them on the spot it would have been 72. Also they have gem mining which was a nice activity to do with the kids after the cave tours.....we bought the family bag for $25 and it was also worth it....had all sorts of gems, shark teeth, fossils, and shells and huge crystal rocks
Ace was out tour guide, he took us to see the crystal palace. He kept the tour fun, energetic, and fast paced. The cave was absolutely beautiful and full of historical facts. Plus their gift shop had a great variety items to choose from, at great prices!
We had a blast here and the kids loved it! My tall friend fortunately bought a miners hat at the gift shop, because he hot his head multiple times on the tours! Our tour guide was very friendly and informational bit we had him for both tours and he kind of just repeated himself for both. Bit they have other activities to do as well which is nice, and the gift shop is cool to look around as well!
Absolutely loved this tour. I went with my fiancee's family on the Dripstone trail. It is the longer of the two options. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and super engaging. The paths themselves were concrete for the most part, with the exception of a few areas. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
