This is a nice little car museum for those who would like to see the real old ones. They were all in good condition, and the "newest" was from about 1935, different from some places that have some "muscle" cars mixed in. They had several Rolls Royces, including one owned by Rudolf Valentino. The museum is included with the ticket... More

I enjoyed the car museum after visiting the Luray Caverns. It is on the same property. There is a fine representation of antique vehicles and the displays are very well done. I especially liked the little informational signs describing each exhibit. Would recommend.

This museum held more cars that we thought possible from the outside. Very classic vehicles. We came away with one question, 'What was the deciding factor to make cars move to left hand steering wheels from the original right hand?" You can see the conversion in this museum. Walking through only took an hour at most, so most people wandered... More

Located at the Luray Caverns site, this excellent automotive museum is well-laid out and walks you thru a very diverse collection of vehicles. Everything is well explained and should you have a question, their staff is readily available to answer it. Only shortcoming is that there is a lot of innovation since the mid-20th century that seems to be not... More

You get admission to the Car and Carriage Museum along with your ticket to the caverns. This is the kind of place I never would have paid to visit on its own, but once I was here I was interested in, and enjoyed, what I saw. My husband, the car guy, REALLY enjoyed it. Worth the walk through, especially since... More

A very nice collection of classic automobiles spanning the birth of the auto industry to the present. Labels are very informative. They packed a lot of cars in this little museum. Row after row of classic beauties. It was a fascinating look at the evolution of the automobile. All the cars are beautiful like they just came out of the... More

It's a real cool collection of old vehicles you will not get to see up close and personal these days. The history behind these vehicles are very amazing. The space is kind of cramped so you might not be able to take a good shot but enjoy the view at least. It's connected to the Luray caverns shop in case... More

Surprised they had some cars that are extremely rare and a few celebrity cars. You will not see cars like this at a local antique car show. Figure at least an hour if you like cars.
