Driving the Dream
The Car & Carriage Caravan Museum at Luray Caverns is one of America's most outstanding exhibits of rare vintage vehicles. Established in 1957, the museum was built on one man's fascination with antique transportation. H.T.N. Graves, president of Luray Caverns Corporation, set out with his staff to locate and purchase a collection deemed important historically, culturally and aesthetically.

Come see the collection, which is arranged chronologically from 1727 to 1941 to showcase a brief history of man's transportation experience over a 200-year period and to share America's passion for the "wide open road."
