“since 1922”

Thrilling visitors from around the world, Shenandoah Caverns is the only cavern in Virginia with elevator service. Explorers of every age and ability will discover an underground world of wonder. With gradual slopes and no stairs, only our sights are breathtaking. An underground world of wonders along a one-mile tour circuit where a comfortable 56-degree temperature is maintained year-round. Plus, we offer the only cavern system with elevator service as well as the added convenience of level walkways and no stairs. Come see the nation's premier parade float exhibition. Your family will see spectacular parade floats from famous national celebrations such as the Rose Parade, Presidential Inaugurals, the Miss America Parade, the Thanksgiving Day Parade, and many more! It's an amazing exhibition that fills 40,000 square feet of floor space with huge floats and delightful animated figures.

Very cool. Worth the stop however give yourself at least 3 hours to see all that they have to offer (caverns, early auto museum, and a local town museum all on the same site.

Fantastic stop — but it’s a stop, not just a place to stretch your legs. This is one of the few caverns in the area with an elevator (making it somewhat wheelchair accessible—if your chair can handle gravel you’re good). However, that also means that the only way to see the caverns is to pay $25 for the hourlong walking tour. It is *absolutely* worth it, but don’t expect to be in and out of here in a hurry.

Tour lasted 45min walked just over a mile. The walk was easy with some low clearances not hard to complete with small children. Guides were fun and interactive with the group.

This was the perfect pit stop on our road trip! The caverns were great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. While you are there you can check out a room upstairs in the main building where the owner has restored a bunch of old figures from the Christmas displays that they used to have in department stores downtown in major cities. If you head down the hill, they have an airplane hangar-type chilling with a bunch of floats from parades major parades all over the country. They also have bags of dirt/gems that you can buy to go sluicing on the property.

Was a nice break from the trip. Very affordable admission with military/veteran/senior discounts. All ages can access because there is an elevator.

We had a lot of fun, loved the cavern tour of course, and the yellow barn, full of wine. Would definitely recommend and come back.
