THE CAR & CARRIAGE CARAVAN MUSEUM at Luray Caverns, Virginia transports visitors through the fascinating story of roadway travel featuring over 140 items related to transportation and including 50 motorized vehicles beginning with simple wagons and coaches to the elaborate and luxurious automobiles of the 1940s. Meticulously restored to their original splendor these “antiques on wheels” are all in running condition and beautifully displayed.
Fascinating to all is the elegant and extremely rare 1932 Rolls Royce Shooting Brake, a recent addition to the collection. A 1928 Mercedes Benz which captures the spirit of a by-gone era. See the oldest auto in operating condition on display in America, the 1898 Benz Vis-à-vis and the interesting 1899 Peugeot are a few of the centerpieces of this outstanding collection.
