Welcome To Meramec Caverns: Missouri's Buried Treasure|
CAVE IS NOW OPEN!!!
Caverns open for tours June 10th at 9 am.
Meramec Caverns voluntarily closed the cave on March 10th because of concerns by the EPA that small amounts of TCE could pose a potential health risk. The health and safety of our employees and visitors is paramount.
All actions taken to reduce levels of TCE have been successful in resolving the problem in the front and upper portions of the cave which is now open for tours. The TCE levels in the open part of the cave no longer pose a health risk to employees or visitors.
Currently tours are not being given in the back part of the cave as we continue to resolve that issue as soon as possible. We are offering discounted ticket prices of $16 for adults and $8 for children until we can offer the entire tour.

Beneath the fertile rolling hills of the Meramec Valley, lies a complex of mineral formations and color as rare and unique as they are beautiful. These jewels of nature which took thousands of years to grow, are preserved in the spectacular sights of Meramec Caverns.
Guided tours by trained rangers are conducted along well-lighted walkways. All cavern facilities are accessible to the disabled. Learn how an ancient limestone "Wine Table" and an entire 7-story mansion were built... all underground. On tour you will see both the rarest and largest cave formations in the world.
Meramec Caverns is the largest commercial cave in the state of Missouri. Missouri is also known as the Cave state, hosting home to more than 6,000 surveyed caves. Meramec Caverns is open year round and offers a fun, affordable vacation for all its visitors. The well-trained rangers can accommodate groups of any size.
MLB (Major League Baseball) recently came down to Meramec Caverns and recommended it as a "Must-See" before a trip to a St. Louis Cardinals game.
Show Me St. Louis came down to the cave. Check it out! It even includes a great spot on our new light show!! If you haven't been to see the cave in a while, this video may just convince you it is time to come back and see us!!! "Meramac Caverns still wows 82 years later". Just west of St. Louis is a place cool year-long.
