Very interesting to see all the different colors stalagmites and stalactites. Amazing, hidden lake. Bluest water. Very educational as well. Bring a jacket its always cold in the cave around 52F. Narrow passages lead you on a short hike.There is a gift shop, where they sell more minerals and rocks. Cool place to check out.

Missouri is "the cave state" among other things, and Bridal Cave is one of the best (if not "the" best) in the state. I've been there on many occasions and always see something that I missed the time before. It is educational, extremely interesting, and full of history (many native American Indians were married there, giving the name Bridal Cave).... More

The Cave has a history itself, Worth visiting, easy walking tour and the guide really knew about the cave history. I went in December, weather was excellent. They do perform weddings.

The cave was very pretty and it was worth the time spent on the tour. The tour was shorter than I had expected. I wish there had been a bit more time to take pictures - it was difficult to take any without dragging behind the rest of the group. My husband is tall and hit his head several times.... More

This was one of the main things we wanted to do during our trip here and I'm glad we did! We had a 6 year old with us and she absolutely had a blast! Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and great with the adults and kids. She really made the experience fun for everyone. I think our favorite part... More

My family went here for the first time and it was amazing. We are very happy that Sarah was our tour guide. She is one of the most friendly people I have met in my entire life and you can tell she takes tons of pride in her job! Sarah made this tour very fun and enjoyable.

I was told by a friend of mine who used to work at Bridal Cave that it is either the second or third most scene cave in the country. Well, if that's the case, I probably wouldn't survive the first most scenic. The most incredible pictures online can't even do this cave justice. It's a natural wonder that everyone should... More
