Luray Caverns

The largest caverns in Eastern America

The largest caverns in Eastern America and the most visited in the United States. This U.S. Natural Landmark is located 90 minutes southwest of Washington, DC, just 10 minutes from Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park. Discover cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high, filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools. The Smithsonian Institution report of July 13 and 14, 1880 comments " is safe to say that there is probably no other cave in the world more completely and profusely decorated with stalactite and stalagmite ornamentation than that of Luray."

Also hear the haunting sounds of the world's largest musical instrument, The Great Stalacpipe Organ. This most unique one-of-a-kind instrument uses stalactites covering 3 1/2 acres of the surrounding caverns to produce tones of symphonic quality when electronically tapped by rubber-tipped mallets. The General Admission also includes the Car & Carriage Caravan, a history of America in an exhibit featuring over 140 items relating to transportation including cars, carriages and coaches dating from the mid-18th century, along with Shenandoah Heritage Village - a collection of local, restored historic buildings creating a small 19th-century farming community including the Luray Valley Museum of the showcasing artifacts of the Shenandoah Valley from the 1750's to the 1920's.
