This huge building contains a myriad of floats from presidential inaugural parades and Rose Bowl parades. The floats are enormous and beautiful. Some are more than 2 stories tall. The float of the American flag must be more than a block long. There is a really cool train garden on the way out. Don't miss it. The grounds outside are... More

We liked the strangeness but it actually scared my granddaughter a bit! There are several moving characters that were interesting but to a two year old, scary.

Was awesome to see all the parade floats up close. You were able to get on some and take pictures. Nice place right beside the caverns. Only takes between 30 mins - 1 hr to go through depending on the amount of time spent looking at them.

The floats were amazing to see. You don't realize how big they are until your actually standing next them. You have the choice of going thru with a guide or walking thru on your own. There are plenty of opportunities to take pictures. This was actually the best part of our day.

I didn't know such a place existed, but I was in the area on business and it was included in my admission to Shenandoah Caverns. It was kind of interesting but also very strange and somewhat disturbing. As other reviewers have mentioned, it could potentially be scary to small children. There were some crying children when I was there, saying... More

There are floats here from many well known parades such as Macy's and the Rose Bowl. They are mammoth and oh so beautiful! Each float is accompanied by a plaque with information to make it even more interesting. Some of the floats have been arranged in a manner that allows visitors to take their pictures while on them, though most... More
