  • A great educational experience for my son who loves science. It's basically the same temperature inside as it is outside, but humid. Dress accordingly.  more »
  • I thought this might be a tourist trap, but found it very stunning and an interesting guided tour. The museum on the valley history was also quite interesting  more »

  • Luray Caverns is an enjoyable, educational, and very popular tourist destination. Originally discovered in August 1878, it has been captivating and delighting visitors ever since. The cave itself is quite beautiful and majestic. The tour guide was truly outstanding and really brought the tour to life. She greatly enhanced the experience for all of us. Admission was a little pricey but also includes the Luray Caverns Car Museum and the Luray Valley Museum as well. Convenient and ample parking abounds. Employees are friendly and helpful at every turn. This cavern, the car museum, and the LVM are all very family-friendly. Kids and kids-at-heart will have a great time at the Luray Caverns.
  • Awesome family experience. Our tour guide Christina was Great! She gave my son a great responsibility along the tour.. It was amazing! Every child should visit and experience. And a hell of a workout! 5 Stars.
