Where learning meets fun! We are proud to offer a caverns tour saturated with both historical and scientific information. Our cave has played an ongoing role in historical events for over 2,000 years from the woodland Indians to the Prohibition in the 1920s. Our specific historical contributions span thousands of years but we assure you whether your class is learning about the exploration of America, the Civil War, or the geological formations, our cave will bring education to life! We invite you and your class to make history here at DeSoto Caverns and encounter stories you'll never forget.
