Sometimes written words fail us when we try to describe the great Mammoth Cave. Sometimes the story is better told through pictures, or the sounds of a vanished age, or animation that makes simple a difficult idea. On these pages, we will be offering new sights and sounds of Mammoth Cave National Park.

But remember – as exciting as some of these pages may be, there's no substitute for being here. So explore these links and let yourself become inspired to make a greater exploration, in person, in the grand and gloomy chambers of the world's longest cave.

Musicians often played in Mammoth Cave.

For many years, the chambers of Mammoth Cave rang with the sound of music. Visiting bands such as Landram's Sax-Horn Band and Luther Ewing's String Band, along with the Mammoth Cave Hotel's own local musicians, entertained visitors underground into the early 20th century.
