The Great Stalacpipe Organ

Found in the Luray Caves, Virginia, this has got to be amongst the most astonishing musical instruments in the World.

The organ was designed by Leland Sprinke in 1956 and replaces traditional organ pipes with the stalactites found naturally in the caverns. The Great Stalacpipe Organ literally ROCKS!

They don't play them any more, though. They just play a tape recording when you're in there. At least, that's what they did when I was there.

The sad part is, they altered the formations to get the right tones.

if you go to Luray Caverns (not caves lol), right around the same time they show off the organ, they'll ask if something seems out of place in the room. don't say the electrical wires, een those clearly don't belong in a cavern.
