Wished I would have checked the website before the long drive from St. George to visit. Other cars were there as well trying to get in. Too bad we missed this as it sounded very interesting.

Interesting family owned private cave, costs a little to visit even the gift shop but interesting enough. Very friendly family that runs/owns it. Very welcoming. The cave has rocks and fossils and some artifacts too. Fun to check out for a quick 15 minute visit....More

The Moqui cave is still in the orginial family...the granddaughter (I beleive) runs the cave now. She gives you a tour and tells you about the history of the cave. Very cool. She has a gift shop with cute items! Worth the stop!

Interesting to stop by to see a private cave including an extensive collection of rocks and fossils. Beautiful countertop and backsplash made with beautiful rocks and geodes. Worth stopping to visit.

This was a nice stop. Would place it in the classic roadside Americana category. Cave made into a rock and fossil museum, mostly it seems from a personal collection. That being said, it's one heck of a collection. Nice little roadside stop between Kanab and...More

This cave was purchased by a man called Chamberlain and was originally a bar and ballroom but his original plan was for a museum as it was his love of stones and rocks that lead him to purchase this cave. The bar and stools are...More

This was a very interesting stop on the way into Kanab. It's a large cave with a museum and gift shop. There is a lot of very interesting history and we enjoyed it.

This is a cute little stop while passing through toward Zion Nat’l Park. We stayed for less than an hour. It was neat for the kids and cheap if I recall.

Moqui cave definitely a tourist stop and not a natural wonder. I think the antelope cave/canyon reference is good, although toughly a hundred mile east from Kanab, closer to Lake Powel. Did not visit Antelope given distance
