Also included in the general admission ticket is the Shenandoah Heritage Village, a museum campus centric to the Shenandoah Valley’s history, hosting a collection of relocated and restored historic buildings. The village features the Luray Valley Museum which houses an extensive collection of material culture of the area, ranging from Pre-Contact Native American, colonial settlement, up to the 1920s. Enjoy strolling through the beautiful grounds dotted with heirloom flowers, seasonal living history demonstrations, and a small vineyard of native Norton grapes.

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 Shenandoah Valley, this “must see” U.S. Natural Landmark awaits your discovery. One hour guided tours from well-lighted, paved walkways lead visitors through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high. Enormous chambers are filled with towering stone columns, shimmering draperies and crystal-clear pools.

“Hear Rocks Sing” in this subterranean wonderland 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. For more than 144 years, Luray Caverns 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.
