This is just one of the attractions at Luray Caverns, free with ticket to Caverns. They have vehicles ranging from horse drawn carts to Rolls Royce. Each piece has info/facts about them. 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.

We went to the Caverns and had no idea that the car and carriage museum was included in the ticket price. It's quite a little gem of mostly American car history. I believe the sign said 125 cars? Don't quote me! I am not a big 'car' enthusiast, but I really enjoyed the cool stuff they had in there. Let's... More

My guy friend enjoyed the museum a lot! I'm not very into cars, but the museum has a vast collection of old cars in great conditions even I enjoyed it. The museum isn't very large, but it packs a lot of information and cars in the short length. I highly recommend walking through, even if you don't like car history.... More

The amount of various modes of transport that they have squeezed into this area is almost unbelievable. Most are in pristine condition and well looked after, however as they are all packed so close together it is easy to miss items and as the walkways are narrow stopping to browse can cause a jam.With some unique items on show it...

This was included with our trip through the Luray Caverns. It was short enough that my 7 year old could stay interested, but long enough that my husband enjoyed the walk through history. We enjoyed this thoroughly.

They have a pretty decent collection of cars from the 1900's-1930's. The entrance is free if you buy a ticket to the Luray Caverns.
