Who knows? They might find something that has been overlooked by everyone else ("everyone knows" that lead doesn't go anywhere).

Then they'll want to explore other caves hoping they see something similar. You can tell them that not all caves are this magnificent. But it gives them something to look forward to. If you take someone young just to look at mud and rocks they may lose interest.
