    An OLLI “DC Museum Run” is the best way to do DC for the day! Our post-Labor Day trip anticipates somewhat cooler weather and a more leisurely pace. View classic art or marvel at the wonders of aviation or our natural world in an impressive lineup of free museums including the National Gallery of Art, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Museum of Natural History, U.S. Botanic Garden, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The OLLI Bus will let you off and pick you up at the National Gallery of Art, a monumental presence on the National Mall between 3rd and 9th Streets, at Constitution Avenue NW. Then you may explore on your own for the day. Or, on the ride to D.C. we’ll see if people want to see the same sights as other OLLI travelers and organize informal groups. Anyone for the East Gallery, lunch at the Sculpture Garden, and a visit to the nearby Museum of the American Indian?

    This OLLI Luray Caverns outing offers a guided tour of the largest and most popular cavern in Eastern America. Following well-lit, paved walkways through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings ten stories high, we’ll take in towering stone formations and natural wonders at every turn. We’ll hear the Great Stalacpipe Organ, the world’s largest musical instrument, which literally makes stalactites sing. The OLLI Luray Caverns experience will also include stops at The Car & Carriage Caravan Museum and Luray Valley Museum.

    After spelunking at Luray Caverns, we’ll dine at the historic Mimslyn Inn with some added time to take in the Inn’s beautiful setting and Luray’s spectacular fall foliage.

    Note: Luray Caverns are not currently wheelchair accessible and three sections of steps and some paved walkways with moderate grades may be difficult for visitors with disabilities.
