Now that we are southern Indiana folks, I was looking at all the cool nature-type stuff I can take my kids (ages 2, 5 & 7) to see. Has anyone here been to Marengo Cave? I think my 5 & 7 year olds would dig it, but not sure about my 2 year old.

Marengo is nice, very cave. Its one of the better, IMHO, tour caves in southern IN. As to your 2 yo,,, hard to say - maybe take 'em in dark rooms, w/ just a flash light and see if scared, or such tickles their fancy....

FWIW, the one IN tour cave that I would not recommend tho' would be the one that starts w/ the letter B - kinda overpriced for whatcha get. But, then again, that opinion is coming from a caver...

If ya do/did go, please post how it went!

I enjoyed Marengo cave a lot. There are machines that strike the stalagtites/stalagmites set up throughout the cave and produce different tones. As part of the tour, they play a song and it is strange but beautiful. I think that your children would enjoy it. It might be a good idea to leave the 2 year old with grandma for the trip, though. I think you would end up carrying him/her for most of the tour. The guides do a good job and there is lots of history.
