When me and my family went we were surprised at the artifacts. But I guess since we went so early there weren't many people to watch. So. The security followed us everywhere. But overall it is a nice place for the whole family to go.

Hopefully you've gotten an answer. To my memory, I believe there's room for an RV there.

On their web site, they state that they are closed on major holidays. New Year's Day would qualify as a major holiday.
