Alot of steps and uphill walking but very interesting and fun. Very interesting, educational, exhausting, Loved the museums, especially the carriage and cars. Quite a History lesson everyone should have.Early in the morning is best to avoid the lines to get in.

As about million other reviews already state, this is an awesome place to visit. Hint: save a ton of time and buy tickets online before hand... we ended queuing for 45 minutes.

I've visited several caverns in the US and this one is definitely one of the best. Dream lake is so amazing. All the different formations are so interesting. This is a must see.

Luray Caverns is just spectacular. I was there about 40 years ago and then again last year and it still amazed me. My family had never seen it and they loved it. Beautiful and stunning natural wonders. Well worth your time to stop and see...More

If you're in Shenandoah National Park it is worth it to visit these caverns, especially if you have never been in one before. I thought they were very nice (the ones I've visited in Italy and France were a bit better), good tour with some...More

With every turn this cavern bought more wonders of natures underground creativity over 7 million + years. We had a great guide in Emma who was hugely knowledgeable and informative on the hour tour of the cave. Weirdly you enter through a very unassuming door...More
