The caverns were overall nice and I enjoyed walking through the car museum. However, I felt the price for admission was a bit expensive. As other reviewers have said large groups of ~50 people are guided on a tour through the caverns at a time....More

Over all this was a large disappointment. The tour was about a hour and an a half then there is other museums you can look through with your admission ticket for the next 6 months. For $27/adult it was too expensive for what we got....More

A must see if you are visiting Luray. This place is beautiful! The tour was an hour long, an easy walk.

Discovered in 1848 and said to be formed about 450 million years ago, the caverns are both an educational experience and a wonder of science. Viewing those structures under ground and realizing how long it took them to get there in the present form, amazing....More

This wasn't on our original itinerary. I heard about this from our hotel desk clerk in Manassas. It was perfect way to kill a day with the long drive (long for us as we live on a small island and can go circles). The cost...More
