The brochures claim this is the biggest souvenir shop in Kentucky! We expected something much larger! Took less than 5 minutes to walk through the whole place. Lots of cheap options, nothing spectacular. The cashier was friendly enough.

This is a great gift shop to stop at because it is so much more than just that! This is touted as Kentucky's largest rock shop. I love rock so I really enjoyed going into the "rock house ". So many beautiful things in there...More

Only souvenirs and rocks. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nice things to look at and the usual prices. Some were more then other gift shops. There wete also t- shirts and sweatshirts.

It is what the advertisements say it is. It is a rock shop...a pretty nice one at that... I don't understand rock shops but that's ok. If you are into rocks, Mike has it. It is interesting to see Big No! If nothing else, stop...More

My wife, an earth and space teacher was thrilled to find coprolite, fossilized dinosaur poop, to show her students. Great selection of both raw and polished minerals

This is your typical gitchy gift shop full of shot glasses and typical souvenirs. Lots of geodes and rocks. The staff seemed friendly enough and there are tons of options that say Kentucky on them. It's about what you should expect.

There's a great array of all kinds of rocks, geodes and glass. There's also a gift store and some kind of mystery house we did not enter. Staff in the gift shop was very friendly

If you're looking for some kitschy souvenirs, this is your spot in Cave city. Lots of wizards, wolves, and NASCAR paraphernalia. HUGE SELECTION of rocks and geodes. Nice place to kill half an hour on a hot day.
