There were some amazing old vehicles in here. The only thing is you felt like you were being watched. And if you so much even touched a tire they would jump out and yell from across the room at you NO TOUCHING!!!

I took my 9 yr. old son after we visited the caverns. We enjoyed seeing all of the different makes and models of the vintage cars.

Thought it was just a simple side attraction to Luray Caverns since it is covered by the same ticket. Was I ever surprised and delighted! Really nice collection, well laid out and in pristine condition, A joy of a find!

I would say that the owners of Luray has made this place as added free attraction to call for more visitors. Not a great place but I dont mind visiting here for 20 min as its free and I had nothing much to do for rest of day.

I would say it was kinda just ok. If I were a car buff I'd probably be blown away, but I'm not so it was just interesting in an 'ok' sort of way. Worth walking through but we literally spent 10 minutes there and headed for ice cream. Entry came with the price of the ticket to the caverns and... More

We stopped at the Luray Caverns and decided what the heck, we would also look at the cars because it's included in the price. I was overwhelmed with the extent of the museum. There are so many cars from 1700s carriage to Rudolph Valentinos car! Outstanding exhibit!

This museum is free with your admission to the Caverns. There is a large collection of buggies and wagons, and an even bigger collection of antique cars. Each one has an informational placard in front of it so you can learn a bit about all of them. All of the cars look almost brand new.

It was an amazing experience to see the preserved stagecoaches, buggies, and cars of long ago--those of poor travelers and those of the wealthy. I never knew some stagecoaches had heating mechanisms that housed (I suppose) hot coals at the feet of the driver and also in the passenger area.

Much better collection that I anticipated. A number of rare and one shot examples of pre WW1 autos. A number of 1,2,3 cynlinder vehicles. The scale and volume of exhibits is extensive and well cared for condition. I have been to "museums " were the vehicle is in ignored static display, the care and maintenance is obvious. Well worth a... More
