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

We were able to see this with our ticket to the caverns. The kids thought it was fine...but loved mining for gems at the end of the tour. Get the $25 bag of gems, you will get huge geodes and pieces of copper, fools gold and more...tuns of stones...well worth it!

It was awesome to see this museum and the price is included in the caverns fee. It had the very old models of cars and carriages. YOu dont get to see these vintages anymore. Thouroughly enjoyed it.

We want because it was included in the price of the caverns. Glad we did, not a large collection of cars, but some well preserved ones.
