I recently acquired this 4 piece piece pressed penny set on a trip to Indiana Caverns in Corydon, IN. Images include the underground boat ride, cave bacon, a salamander, and an ice age fossil.
Indiana Caverns is home to a fun cave tour that includes an underground boat ride. Along the way, you will get to check out a 4 story underground waterfall, unique formations, and bones from animals that lived during the ice age.
The cave tour was fun and informative. It lasts about an hour and a half. You walk for about 30 minutes, take a 30 minute boat ride, then walk another 30 minutes. It was interesting learning about how the cave was discovered and seeing the unique formations.
Although we only did the cave tour on this trip, there is so much more to do and see at Indiana Caverns. They have a zip coaster, escape rooms, and gemstone mining. You could easily spend most of the day there.
