“Enjoy this Deep Cave!”
A new era began for Howe Caverns on April 19, 2007 when the 220 shareholders of Howe Caverns, Inc. sold the company to two local men, Charles M. Wright and Emil J. Galasso. Both men vowed to invest several million dollars in improvements to Howe Caverns over the coming years. Mr. Galasso is also the founder of the Cave House Museum of Mining & Geology on the site of the original Howe's Cave located on land adjacent to Howe Caverns. The vision for the future of these properties includes joining the present Howe Caverns to Lester Howe's original cave on the site of the museum so that visitors may see the natural wonder as they did in the 19th century. The new owners continue to fulfill their vision for a renewed Howe Caverns to expand the tour beyond the current Lake of Venus. Eventually, this work will unite the entire cave system as it was found when Lester Howe discovered it in 1842. Walkways, lights and bridges will need to be installed. The 875 feet of cave destroyed by mining in the early 1900's will need to be recreated. Since 2007, visitors can now view the Cave House Museum at various times during the year. The Cave House Museum is a restoration project and is expected to take several years for completion.
Loved coming here as a kid and it was really amazing to bring my kids and husband here. They were in just as much awe as I was as a kid. It’s a bit overpriced and some new additions are unnecessary, but the cave itself is a must do for anyone.
Was passing through New York and saw this attraction on Roadtrippers App. Great time! Recommend the Lantern Tour, our guide was informative and friendly. Would definitely recommend and revisit they have other activies available make a weekend out of it.
Perfect with kid !!! The motel is clean and comfy. We took the tour and stay package, it is a very good deal with plenty of gifts for your little one. Loved loved loved ! (You have to taste their cheese !)
Fun cavern to check out, but lately has turned into a pretty serious tourist trap. If you've never been here, it's really cool and worth seeing. Definitely a remnant from the heydays of roadside attractions.
