We came here because it was close by and sounded interesting. We took the 9:30 Gangster Tour by bus and then the 12:00 walking cave tour. I would highly recommend both. In the era of gangsters, St. Paul was a "safe city" for criminals because of corruption. So long as they followed the rules, they would not be arrested. The tour was a 2 hour monologue by an actress who portrays one of the gangster women. She gave many facts and interesting stories about the gangsters who lived in the area. Most of the buildings of the time a gone, but some are still here. It was great. The Cave Tour was equally good. I would recommend it to everyone.

We did the cave tour and then we did the bus tour of the city to learn more about our history. Our guide for the walking tour and then the bus tour was the same woman. She was dressed for the party and for almost three hours kept us engaged as we learned about the history of cops and gangsters and prohibition in our area. It was very fascinating!

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 night here.

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
