Summer Soirées is a NEW series of themed events for adults 21 and older at Cave of the Mounds National Natural Landmark. Cave of the Mounds is clearly best known for that underground geologic wonder. What is less known is that the beautiful gardens above the cave are an explosion of blooms throughout the summer. Come enjoy the gardens, stroll through the blooms, listen to live music, enjoy local beverages, and of course, tour the cave.


Summer season hours begin at Cave of the Mounds on Memorial Day Weekend!  Open daily 9 AM to 7 PM.  Last tour begins at 6 PM.
