I am not really into cars, but even I enjoyed it. nice side addition to the Luray Caverns. The cars are lined up by their age starting with the oldest. We spent about 30-40 minutes.

My husband is a car enthusiast so we went to the museum. I even loved it. There are horse drawn carriages, baby strollers and incredibly old cars. The carriages were so incredible. Some were so ornately decorated it was almost impossible to think these were used for travel. The amount of motorized vehicles was amazing. My granddaughter asked me why... More

Thought we go through here just to kill time but found ourselves delighted to be here. Very old and historic vehicles. Everything from Fords to Rolls Royces.

It takes about 10 minutes to walk thru. It is located right beside the caverns. They have some very interesting and beautiful cars. My daughter was amazed at the cars from the early 1900s. Worth the visit when it's free!

This museum really has lots of old cars and it is interesting to go through, some of the cars were a lot larger than I would have imagined for the time frame they were built . It is self guided with informational placards next to each car. The admission is included in the price of the caverns tour, so go... More

The teens were skeptical about going in the Car and Carriage Caravan Museum. We're all glad we checked it out, though. It doesn't take much time, and there were so many interesting and beautiful things to see!

This is included with the price of the Luray Caverns. It was interesting and each vehicle had a placard with description of vehicle, year and price.

We went to the car museum as an after thought to the caverns. We were so glad we did as the collection is quite impressive with many rare antique autos that are in mint condition. Some of the cars were produces in very small quantities, so the items on display are quite unique. The descriptions of the cars are quite... More

Like any museum ,this is not a good place if you have younger children that do not allow ytou to look and learn. I was able to go... More

Was so great to see all the old cars and the first electric car. My husband is an energy efficiency expert so it really was up his ally! To compare what we drive today to the cars of yesterday is amazing . The size sure has changed.
