This was supposed to be the highlight of the three museums at luray, but fell short. While there is a lot of stuff in the indoor museum, the amount of detail provided was erratic. Some exhibits were well documented and informative while others were jumbled,...More

It does have a few artifacts of local historical value/ importance. Since the local history was foreign to me, I found it hard to connect with anything there

Although Luray Caverns opens at 9AM, many parts of this museum do not actually open until 11AM. There was a lot of local history highlighted in the artifacts displayed in the museum. There was really no one around to answer questions.

Stop in and visit while at the caverns. It is surprisingly well done. I recommend visiting this museum in conjunction with the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester to get a great look at the history of the Valley. I’m impressed as a historian.

This was included in the price of admission to the Caverns. Had many artifacts from years gone by. Had many buildings to tour and had an old bible that had been donated.

And life used to be mostly harder than we have it! This shows how things were done and the amount of physical work required from everyone is a bit daunting. The ingenuity of invention at the time is also easier to appreciate than today's magic...More

The cost for the museum is bundled in with the cavern tour. You might be able to purchase it separately, but you'd need to call the location to see what the price would be.

The price of admission is $26, for one adult, and the ticket is for Luray Caverns + Car & Carriage Caravan + Luray Valley Museum. I don't recall the Museum having a separate price.
