Check out the precursor to the Chevy Volt, the 1908 Baker Electric. And bask in the indulgent 1925 Rolls Royce, associated with the silent film star, Rudolph Valentino.

Our collection features over 140 items related to transportation and includes 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 among period artifacts and costumes.

From Wagons to Wheels

The collection began in the early 1950’s by H.T.N. Graves, former president of Luray Caverns Corporation.

With the interest of sharing a new attraction with the hundreds of thousands of yearly visitors to Luray Caverns, he set out with his staff to locate and purchase a collection deemed important to the history of travel. These vehicles in post-World War II America were not considered by most to be of cultural or historic importance. They were, however, recognized by Graves and staff to be objects of certain aesthetic beauty and cultural significance. This vision chartered a new appreciation and understanding of man’s transportation experience over a 200-year period. In an American perspective, transportation has been a great agent in the country’s interpretation of freedom and the notion of the “wide open road.” Since its inaugural year of 1957, the museum has educated and entertained millions of Shenandoah Valley visitors and remains one of America’s most outstanding exhibits of rare vintage vehicles.
