This was the best thing that happened to my 8 year old and 11 year old. For $25 we bought a big bag of sand and found GIANT chunks of amethyst, crystal etc. Seems expensive but you will walk away with some impressive semi-precious rocks and your kids will feel they really "found it." Cute, cute, cute.

The Luray Valley Museum is included in your admission to the Luray Caverns. It was very nice. There is a little Museum to explore of history of the area and then you can tour a 7 acre recreation of an old farming town. I loved looking at the old houses. The area is just so pretty.

Nice snapshot of the area from the past. Some surprisingly nice things in it. I wouldn't pay to tour it but included with the caverns, its worth it.

My husband and I visited the new wine tasting at Luray caverns. We found it to be a fun experience. The server did an excellent job of presenting the wines. We found the price to be in line with smaller local venues. The atmosphere was wonderful, enjoyed the Norwegian style tasting bar and the log structure was beautiful. The grounds... More

We visited the museum since admission was included with Luray Caverns. The museum has a very thorough history relating to the local area. It also has some historic buildings on site to explore. The highlight for us was a trio of barn cats who escorted us around the museum grounds.

Our tickets to Luray Caverns included free admission to this museum. It should have been a sign when we walked in and literally were the only other tourists here, on a busy day. We first walked through the actual museum. It's not very big, but looked like it was recently renovated. It's nice--just very similar to pioneer museums we have... More

Have to say that this was the first day they offered the wine tasting and we were the first customers. But that said, the tasting was on the high side ($8.50 for four wines). The lady giving the tasting did not drink wine herself and had never given tastings before. I do this for a living so I gave her... More

I was really looking forward to this as I like this time in history. It just seemed to not to have had a lot of effort put in. It could have had more interactive exhibits, people in period costumes, etc. Took all of 20 minutes to see.

This museum is included in your ticket to the caverns and is well worth the visit. You learn a lot about Mennonites and you can mine for gems (our daughters fav part!)

I visited the Luray valley Museum after my tour of Luray Caverns. It is a very nice museum with alot of information about life in Luray when it was settled. It was not as crowded as the caverns so I was able to take my time and see everything. The dislays are very well done and did enjoy seeing everything... More
