“a classic among tourists attractions”
"Despite the passage of time today’s tourists are intrigued in the same manner as early visitors were in the 1800’s. With the exception of easier access, illumination and slightly different names to identify formations, Crystal Cave’s appearance and description is very similar to when it was a newly discovered cave. In 1876, William H. Egle M.D. stated in his book An Illustrated History of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Civil, Political, and Military “that Crystal Cave is a remarkable curiosity and a subterranean wonder regarded with admiration by all who have examined it”. In 2000, Earl Steinbicker, author of Daytrips Pennsylvania Dutch Country and Philadelphia wrote, “that Crystal Cave is a classic among tourists attractions. By now, millions of millions of people have taken the 45 minute guided tour marveling at this subterranean wonderland.” Interestingly, the 124-year time difference did not alter the sentiments about Crystal Cave."
Nice easy day trip. Walking up to the cave is steep! Enjoyable movie gives you a quick history of the cave. Cave is awesome. Could have stayed in there for longer. So so much to see !! Nice reasonable gift shop.
