Descend into Luray Caverns for an impressive experience

Deep within the chambers of the Luray Caverns is an organ millions of years in the making. Let the notes of the largest musical instrument in the world guide you through a stunning maze of remarkable features in this underground realm.

The Great Stalacpipe Organ is unlike any other organ in the world. In order to listen to it you must go underground. Travel through this cave to hear the largest musical instrument on Earth.

The organ is the most notable feature of the Luray Caverns, a vast cave system in northern Virginia. It was created in the 1950s when rubber mallets were strategically placed on 37 stalactites across three and a half acres of the caverns. It’s these stalactites, formations made of mineral deposits that hang from the cave ceiling, that replace the metal pipes found in traditional organs.
