The caverns themselves are like any other caverns. However there are a couple of museums (one history and one auto) along with a couple of other attractions on the property which make it worthwhile to visit. Reasonably priced for what you get. Kids will love it.

We visited Luray Caverns with our children (ages 13-8) - I would not recommend bringing children under 8 or so, as it's 1 1/4 mile walk total through caverns and takes quite a while. My youngest (8), was struggling to remain attentive by the end. The caverns are amazing - the structures- just amazing!! The tour was much much too... More

It has been over 10+ years since I have been here. Now that I have 2 kids of my own 10 & 9. We decided to do a day trip here. Not that bad of a drive if you start out early. It was about a 3 hr. drive for us not too long. The scenery was amazing and my... More

We specifically stopped here travel king thru other cavern site billboard beckoning off the interstate. Quick tips: X family of 4 close to $90. They take military and AAA discount. Could not find Entertainment club or brochure coupon. X Luray Caverns is a corporation so they have to make money. They have bundled in other museum onsite properties, whether you're... More

Although the cost of admission was $26 for adults, it is definitely worth the visit. Essentially, the cost of admission gives you access to various other attractions on the property in addition to touring the caverns. The tour is about an hour long give or take a few minutes. The scenery is also stunning as Shenandoah National Park is nearby.... More

It's $2 off on a military discount on site, if you procure tickets at a ITT office, apparently you get more off the steep admission price. Still, this is a great stop if you're out in Shenandoah (we actually went out expressly to see the caverns). The tour is an hour-- the caverns are amazing-- but the tour was a... More

I loved the tour of the caverns & the gift shop was great. My children loved the car museum & the maze. Plenty if parking & easy to spot from the road. For out of towner's, The historical Luray Bell tower, Wal-Mart, McDonald's, taco bell/pizza hut, a Mexican resteraunt named Mindy's, gas station & 7-11 with gas station & Burger... More

Being Floridians, the drive into here had us singing this song as we got closer. The mountains are just beautiful. And the caverns topped off our experience. The tour guide had a huge group of us, but did fairly well in making sure everyone was on board and informed of the history and the features. Its really beautiful inside and... More
