1 hour tour of former night club and many other purposes. Our tour guide, Deborah was entertaining and fine while passing on the cave history. The history of the caves included mob activity, ghost stories, and more recent filming in the caves. The caves are currently used for the weekend tours and private event space
For me it was a must see because I enjoy history
We did not have time for the mob tour that could be take after the cave tour

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, and it was absolutely amazing and magical.

My husband and I went on the Cave Tour and the bus tour. We started at the coffee shop next door and had great treats. Since we both grew up in St Paul, learning about the caves was very informative. We really enjoyed the Gangster Tour with our own Gangster! She was great!! This is not your high school history class field trip - this is so much better!

These 'caves' are not, of course caves at all; they are disused mine workings which have left huge chambers now used as a bar and entertainment venue. The tour is cheap and the guide who took us round was a born showman. His tour was informative and amusing and provided an entertaining hour for the large group who wanted to learn a little about this significant part of St Paul's history - and be entertained.

The group meets in a nearby coffee shop which has superb coffees and hot chocolates; well worth arriving early to enjoy these delights!

The caves are spectacular only in as much as they are very big; there are no beautiful features such as could be expected in a real natural cave but the history of the 'cave' complex and the way it relates to the history of St Paul and Minneapolis make the tour really worthwhile.

Allow an hour for this early evening tour during your visit to St Paul.

How anyone can give this mini gangster tour anything less than 5 stars must be pretty hard to please. The tour is $8 per person for a 45 minute informative and fun tour regarding the caves and how they were formed
