We were told about this attraction by a local business, as we had never heard of it, and it wasn't in any of the brochures we had. If you are in this area, take the time to tour it, as it is breathtaking and awesome. It is only 10.00 per person for admission, and the lobby is decked out with... More

This museum contained some very beautiful floats and other decorations from inaugural parades, inaugural balls, the Rose Parade, and the Pennsylvania Thanksgiving Day parade. It was fun to take our time and look at all there was.

Very nice, and no extra charge. Go to Luray, and then visit here... floats from many parades, no reproductions.

This exhibit is adjacent to the Shenandoah Cave. It includes 40,000 square feet of parade floats used in parades from the 90's. If you've never seen a parade float up close and personal, this is a must see. We are all familiar with watching national parades on TV during the holidays. They certainly look different up close.

This attraction was included in our ticket to the caverns so we had to stop in and see what it was all about. My boys enjoyed it (3, 8, 10). The floats are enormous and yes, you are able to get on some of them (but not all) We went on a very very slow day so we were the... More

It was wonderful to see in person floats that maybe I'd once seen on television in the Rose Parade or Presidential Inaugurations. There are also stages and other props used at political conventions, fighter planes and various other surprises. There was much more here than I expected and I enjoyed visiting.

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.
