Luray Caverns

101 Cave Hill Road

About Us:

Since discovery in 1878 by a tinsmith and a local photographer, visitors by the millions have made Luray Caverns the most popular cave in Eastern America and an internationally acclaimed destination.
4,000,000 centuries in the making beneath Virginia's storied Shenandoah Valley, this "must see" U.S. Natural Landmark awaits your discovery. One hour tours, from well-lighted, paved walkways lead visitors through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high. Enormous chambers are filled with towering columns, shimmering draperies and crystal-clear pools.
Also in this subterranean wonderland, "Hear Rocks Sing" as you experience the haunting sounds of the world's largest musical instrument, The Great Stalacpipe Organ. Completely unique are the beautiful tones created by this one-of-a-kind instrument, which makes music of concert quality from the surrounding stalactite formations covering more than three acres.

Luray Caverns, for more than 130 years, has been renowned as one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders. A world of magic and majesty, still as marvelously beautiful as described in the newspaper headlines over a century ago.

The tour takes about an hour and costs around $30. You get to see and hear about the really cool caverns under Luray. The best part for me was the lake with the perfect reflection. The organ was cool. Flash photography is absolutely allowed. Good shoes are recommended, because it's sometimes a tad slippery. The ticket also includes admission to the small Luray Museum, which shows local buildings from back in the day, and the car museum, which really has a few gems.

Great attraction, was quite a visual experience. We chose to go here on our week-long trip to the Washington DC. The Caverns are absolutely beautiful and worth an excursion. The fee is little steep because they don't let you in for a longer period, I felt the guided tour was kinda rushed and fast. They guide was very good and shared a lot of cool facts but I feel more time to explore each stop site would have been welcomed. The car museum is nice and worth the extra hour.

Luray Cavern is a preserved natural cavern museum. It shows scientific process of how stalactite turning into stalagmites. The experience is mesmerizing, yet extremely enjoyable and soothing. The canvern tour is great and the local guides are very attentive, informative, and awesomely friendly! Overall, I would recommend this place for a family tour (all ages), geologist study, and sightseeing. *Photos are taken by Google Pixel 2* (I'm not sponsored nor affiliated with both Luray Cavern and Google in anyway.

Fantastic experience. I waited 40 years to come to visit this caves. I knew from them since I was 8 to 10 years old. Originally my idea was of a massive cave with geological formations of accumulations of minerals on the ceiling and floor in the cave. Well it was 5 hundred times much better than what I always imagined. I highly recommend people to visit it and please don’t touch anything. It takes almost 5 hundred thousand years to get on the shape that it is. We should respect every square inch of this marvel. You have to see it to believe it. By the way; my experience with all the personnel in the Facilities was super upstanding. You won’t regret visiting the Caverns.

Wow just wow. This cavern is massive. I was expecting a small cavern with steep stairs and loose railings but the entire floor is paved and a vast majority of the formations have not been destroyed by visitors. The tour does take an hour but there is a lot to see. Great place to bring kids. The railings and safety features of the cave do well with small children so you don't have to worry about them dropping your phone down into the bottomless chasm. The gift shop and rest of the building are well kept and the staff was very nice.
