Jewel Cave National Monument is the home of the third-longest cave in the world. (They've now mapped 181.16 total miles!) But it's not just below ground that's full of updates in 2016—there is a new park store addition that was also completed this year.

Jewel Cave National Monument is happy to announce that it will be open seven days each week this winter, excluding Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Days. The visitor center will be open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. However, beginning Monday, November 28, a limited tour schedule will be available; Scenic Tours and Discovery Talks are only slated for Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The one hour and 20-minute Scenic Tour is scheduled at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The 20-minute, wheelchair accessible Discovery Talk is offered at 9:05 a.m., 12:45 p.m., and 3:45 p.m. All cave tours during the off-season are first come first serve; reservations are not taken during the winter months.
