We did a quick stop and spent about 30mins visiting this museum. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly. $24 for two adults and three kids and many more money spent at the souvenir shop.

I believe that a small RV can be parked successfully in the parking areas around the Museum. I'm almost certain that you'll have no problems finding parking very near the museum.
