Floyd Collins Museum

1240 Old Mammoth Cave Road
Cave City, Kentucky 42127

(270) 773-3366

There's a historical marker on the road to Mammoth Cave for "Sand Cave," where Floyd Collins -- America's Greatest Cave Explorer -- met his untimely demise in 1925. The Wayfarer, a large house behind the marker, was purchased by Becky and Larry Bull in 1989 to open an upscale (at least for Cave City) gift shop and bed and breakfast. They didn't know a thing about Floyd. Constant questions by visitors to the marker prompted the Bulls to do their research and open a museum.
