Ethan and Victoria were the best tour guides ever! First Victoria led us through the Manitou Grand Caverns on the haunted lantern tour. She told us all about the history of the caves with such infectious enthusiasm that you almost felt like you were part of the story! She truly loves her job! The tour was so cool and even pretty scary at parts. I would definitely recommend it. We next had the pleasure of having Ethan guide us through the discovery tour. His personality and sense of humor had us cracking up as he led us through the beautiful Cave of the Winds! My pictures don’t do it justice so you’ll just have to go see for yourself and definitely request Victoria and Ethan as your tour guides. You won’t regret it!

Very laid back facility with a lot of history. My husband works at Harley-Davidson and this was total nostalgia for him. Don’t find a lot of classic motorcycles in one place. From shovelheads to knuckleheads this museum is a treasure and one to walk through for sure!
