Well worth a visit before or after a trip to the Luray Caverns. Gives a historical perspective on the area and the lifestyle of people in surrounding areas. Great educational exhibits, well presented. Not too much, just enough.

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.
