Really interesting hole in the ground. Hopefully they will get the funds to survey the surrounding grounds and hopefully see where the tunnels go. Great guide! Edit: They do have a bathroom! I was there 2016-06-19, and used it! And as someone else said, bring a flashlight.

Very interesting, guide was excellent. If only we knew what they were dug out for... Lots of theories, but noone knows for sure. Worth a visit.

a great experience. yes an appointment is necessary but when I called they had a spot open in less than an hour. The tour guide did a terrific job and I found it fascinating. bring a flashlight if possible. caution: no public bathrooms!
