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

If you are into parades (which admittedly I'm not), you might enjoy this place. It reminded me of an acid trip, not that I have any personal experience with such but you get my drift. I am writing this review, however, to warn parents of small children of one thing. In the back, there is an old pumper fire truck.... More

we stayed across at Shenandoah Valley Campground- run by very nice folks that had coupons to the Shenandoah Caverns and American Celebration tour combo. We enjoyed both attractions- Shenandoah Caverns feels more like a cave than Luray (which I loved dipping and squeezing through some spots), and just as specatular w/the amazing rocks. There is also a preveiw of the... More

This was such a surprising and interesting museum. We were surprised by the size of the floats --- so much larger in person! the floats range from an extra-large rolls royce to daisy and donald duck. We loved this place. Brilliant colors, larger than life, some animated floats and some that you could sit on. would highly recommend this museum... More

I heard about this exhibition and wanted to stop here with my mother when going home from our trip down South. Every year we watch the Rose parade on TV and love watching all of the floats. My mother is wheelchair-bound and we moved thru this museum with ease. The staff was friendly, and the floats were just beautiful. They... More

Went here along with the nearby caves for a diversion on our road trip. Very interesting insight into the way these procession floats are constructed and the reuse the characters etc can be put to. Sitting in the drivers seat of one huge float I wondered how on earth the driver could see! Overall a bit of fun and interesting... More
