Visit the most beautiful cave in Missouri.

The first man known to explore the cave was Truman Powell. Powell thought the inside of the cave looked like a subterranean fairyland, leading him to name it the "Fairy Cavern." Many years later, his son Waldo Powell claimed that the rocks inside the cave seemed to tell a story. In 1969, Silver Dollar City bought the cave and renamed it Talking Rocks Cavern. Talking Rocks Cavern offers hour-long tours. The guides are very knowledgeable and entertaining and visiting the cave is perfect any time of the year. No matter what the temperature is outside, this cave remains 63 degrees Fahrenheit.

Besides the tours, they offer other activities such as a 9-hole mini golf course, which teaches about the water cycle at each hole. Gem mining (sluicing) is another popular activity here. Each visitor can purchase a bag of mining rough at the gift shop and sift through the contents using the sluicing troughs. You are also welcome to explore the four nature trails and see the lookout tower, the springhouse, or waterfalls, depending on the path you take. Visitors can also crack a geode, go to the picnic and play areas, or enjoy the SpeleoBox crawl mazes. This attraction is open daily from 9:30 am to 5 pm. Advance reservations are not required, they allow visitors to purchase tickets on-site. If you are interested in caves, don't hesitate to visit the Talking Rocks Cavern in southwestern Missouri.
