This place is not that large, but it certainly can accommodate large groups. We considered this place as one of the venues to get married and have a reception. Great for a humid hot day. Tours are informative, and things do go bump in the...More

The Caves are a local staple in St. Paul. You cannot beat the swing dancing there when there is a live band. It's great for families, friends, or just individuals. It's such a unique, fun, beautiful venue. My Great Gatsby themed prom was hosted here,...More

Disappointing. We expected caves but this was far from it. The tour begins by stating these are mines, not caves. The tour guide was a bit obnoxious with many dry jokes. I didn't need to hear him say multiple times that he just said "poop"....More
