If you visit Luray make sure you're going to the caverns, this museum is next to it. Although it has a bunch of cars and you can see really old prototypes it is not a big deal. Nonetheless, since the entrance is included in the Luray Caverns ticket price you can enter free.

This is part of the ticket price for Luray and I am so happy because otherwise, I would not have gone out of my comfort zone. I did for my Grandson and it was worth it there is a small collection of antique modes of transportation, you are close enough to really see things clearly. Obviously don't touch!!!! This a... More

If one has any interest at all in old automobiles, or no interest at all for that matter, this car museum is a treasure. It tracks the development of motor transportation quite well and there are some rare finds here. For instance, an American-built Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake and a Hispano-Suiza are on display among many others.

When you visit Luray Caverns take advantage of your ticket which includes free admission here - it is a fun, interesting, and colorful display of carriages and vintage autos from the early 1900's. With each display there is a small information plaque about each vehicle and some of its history. The vehicles are all well maintained, colorful, and unique. Picture-taking... More

My grandsons loved this museum. They took pictures of every car (I think) and absorbed all the information. They really learned a lot about history of cars. They were totally shocked that Ford was not first. The cars were in mint condition. You could just let your imagination run wild thinking about the era they were built in and what... More

This was included on the ticket for Luray Caverns, and it was a welcome addition. The cars are maintained well and there is a small plaque describing some basic details for each one. I wish my 11-year-old daughter wasn't with me as she was bored quickly and we got through in about 15 minutes--I could've easily spent an hour or... More

You can spend an hour in here or just wander through in fifteen minutes, but it is free with your cavern ticket, so it is definitely worthwhile to check out the extensive collection of old horse drawn carriages and wagons and very early automobiles.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the museum was interesting. Seeing vehicles that dated back to the 1800s was fascinating. Anyone interested in the history of cars would love this visit.

The museum was free with your cavern admission so of course we went in and were surprised at the collection of cars and information on display at a caverns. There were some beautiful pieces on display and it was very interesting seeing some of the more obscure cars. Great addition to your cavern visit .
