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.

Amazing. A true marvel of our world. Tour guide was great. I'm sure she has to say the same things 100 times a day but she was still funny personable and made the tour enjoyable. There were a lot of places roped off which I'd have loved to see, especially for the price of admission. There's also no place to enjoy or just sit around in the caverns. The tour kind of pushes you through and then into the gift shop at a brisk pace. I wish there was a spot you could just sit in for a while down there. On the surface there is a couple of museums to check out. The antique car museum was most interesting, although I was tired and didn't get to look as much as I wanted. Overall, a great place to visit and breathtaking sight to behold.

We visited on a hot summer day and touring the cool, dark cavern was a treat. Our guide, Ryan, was so knowledgeable and charming as well as patient with our questions and slower walkers. We enjoyed hearing the history of the site as well as the geological details about the formations. Our family also bought tickets for the hedge maze and we were pleasantly surprised at how well it was constructed, maintained and the level of difficulty. We had a lot of fun searching for the clues and finding our way out. A great 1/2 day of family fun.

Beautiful! The caverns were much more extensive than I expected. So much variety. A bit of walking, so not for those who can't handle much walking. Very worth it for anyone else. Everyone was very nice. We also did the maze, which was a lot of fun. It was a nice addition to the caves. We had ages 12-53 and everyone enjoyed it. They have hints available for either those who want to exit, want to get to the next "goal", etc. Or you can go without and be challenged. Our group of 11 people had a great time.

If you never went down a hole, this is your chance to see where the rabbit went 7 million years ago. All caverns look the same and our guide had a monotone voice with the rehearsed lines so it was very uneventful. The maze is pretty fun and the car and other (not toy) museum were worth my time. The fudge was good but not great. Was it worth the price, maybe not but we already spent the money.

Everything the pictures show as well as a great history lesson. My cousin and I made the trip to do something different for the Memorial Day weekend. Make sure to bring a light jacket just in case, because the cavern is 54° year round. I found it a little nippy, however, others were comfortable. Use your own judgment and wear it around your waist just in case. You'll get to tour all of the museums with one $28 fee. It's a great day trip for the family, however, a hike for children under 7. So if you bring a stroller just remember, you'll have to carry it up a steep flight of stairs upon exit. A great way to spend the day.
