The cave is full of history, especially on the walls. We enjoyed the history lessons and corny jokes.

I have been in this Cave twice with a group of students from germany. Every year in fall we come again. Our guide was very good, his explanations were funny and interesting at the same time. All of the group enjoyed it...and our school will come back for sure.

A bit expensive but, probably the best tourist site in Hannibal. I live here so have seen all the local sights. When family stop by for a visit this is one of the first places to see. It is not a huge cave but, the tour is nicely done and really ties into the local history and the Mark Twain... More

If you enjoy history and caves then worth it. Cost is a bit high. Two people with taxes is over $41. Length of tour is roughly an hour. Tour includes Jesse James' signature but you only get to see a picture of it upon exiting the cave. Jesse James apparently hid in the cave at some point in time and... More

This cave tour was pretty fun. Cave is a dry cave so the are only a few cave formations such as flow stone and soda straws. Our guide was Alex and he gave us a very entertaining your of the cave. Pointed out hybernating bars asking the way. A little pricey

If you are into caves, Cameron Cave you need to see. Mark Twain Cave is historic and the guide is good. You need to read the tales of Tom and Becky to enjoy this cave. Pricey for a large family.

I had a great experience, the atmosphere was amazing, as was the tour but there were a few very downplays: In the opening video before you enter the cave, it states that the cave is "Millions" of years old. (There is absolutely no proof of that!) Also the Ticket prices are plain Highway Robbery! I mean, $19 Dollars for an... More
