  • It was the off season when we visited. It was nice to walk thru to just look at some of the old buildings. 
  • Small museum, but loaded with local history, artifacts and stories of the early settlers. Lots of old buildings being restored on site adds to the enjoyment. 
  • Comprised of several bldgs, offers a view of the early years of the settlement of the Shenandoah Valley. The Stonyman Museum houses most of the artifacts and is great. But the outbuildings including b...  read more »
  • My sons favorite pet of the trip! The Gem hunt!
  • This is going to be an odd review because we never entered the museum. About five years ago, I had visited the Luray Valley Museum and found the exhibits quite interesting. When, later, we were staying in the area with friends, I recommended the museum as a place to visit. I was quite shocked to see how built up the immediate area was, filled with touristy crap and businesses geared only for children. It was more amusement park than an historic area, but we weren't there for the rest, so we parked and walked over to the museum. Imagine our surprise when we were told we couldn't enter without buying a pass for the entire amusement park-like attractions. "Can't we just pay to see the museum?" we asked. We were told no. We all got back in the car and drove away. Whoever decided that people could only commit to a multiple entry ticket didn't consider that there might be people ONLY interested in seeing the museum. So the museum lost business and so did everyone else. It is likely that after we had visited the museum, we might have stopped for ice cream or walked through the maze, but when all the choice is taken away, we walked away from everything. Shame on Luray for being short-sighted and greedy. Makes me wonder how many other people have left the area disgruntled.
