We spent the morning touring the Shenandoah Caverns and museum. It was so incredible, it is a walking tour 60-220ft below the surface. These untouchable agates and rocks that are literally growing deep with the earth are amazing. You can first hand experience the shapes,...More

This was part of the Caverns admission. I wouldn't pay for it separately. It's quick. Maybe 20 minutes to walk around. There are bathrooms.

It is $24 for adults and $21 for seniors. Don't recall kids price. We found coupons for a couple of dollars off. Your ticket is for the caverns and the parade floats and the yellow barn. Plan to be there a while 3 hours
