Don't miss Big Mike's! We spent a lot of time looking at the rock collection, taking pictures and talking to the employees who are so nice and fun! Definitely tour The Mystery House. It only costs a couple of dollars.

Big Mike's widow died in January. Was closed when we visited 4-3-15. There's an auction sign out front. Looks like Big Mike's is no more.

Super nice folks, and I got a purchase discount without asking! I don't think the Mystery House is open any more, but if you dig rocks and Southern hospitality then you should go.

Hoping the Mystery House continues to discombobulate visitors...(it's still listed on the entrance sign).

I last visited Big Mike's seven years ago and wanted to see what it was like now. I'm glad to say that it's doing well and the Mystery House is as good as ever -- and still only $1. The guide was enthusiastic and all of the features were working, water and billiard balls running uphill, with the Ames Room Illusion being the highlight of the tour. It's on the way to Mammoth Cave, so there's no reason to miss this place.
