My grandson loved the dinosaurs and the kids play area on the third floor. He is only four so the wonderful history and displays held no interest for him. I look forward to returning when he is older.

This place is awesome! Every few steps you're entering a whole new world. I was very impressed by the caliber of artifacts they had (two real mummies from Egypt, seriously?!) and was fascinated by every room. Upstairs has rooms on pretty much every war America...More

Enjoyed looking at dinosaur bones to Vietnam memorabilia. They cover everything from presidents, Egyptian mummies, shrunken heads to western outlaws. You can spend a short amount of time to even days looking at everything.

Sorry I just saw your question! I'm not sure on parking trailers but the lot is very large. I'm certain there is room, I just don't know if they'd give you a hard time about it. The people there seemed very cool though. You... More
