    Most of the best caves in this part of the world are a bit further to the southeast, tucked in the karst limestone of the Ozark Mountains. Some of the big guns here are Meramec Cavern near St. Louis, Devils Well near Akers, and Round Spring Cave. (The NPS offers more info about the last two at http://www.nps.gov/ozar/naturescience/cave.htm.) The kids might enjoy a trip to Cave Spring in Kansas City, which offers a small cave and butterfly garden. You could also try Lake of the Ozarks State Park, which offers guided cave tours. Please note, however, that visitors who've been in caves in Eastern states affected white-nose disease are asked not to enter caves in Missouri, which are set to see any cases of the disease that's decimating bat populations throughout the Eastern U.S. and Canada.
