Lots of information, Important place worth visiting. Takes about an hour, it was a bit of a crowd. Walk and listen, learn. They issue a headset and audio to proceed at your own pace. Its an A++

I'm not sure about that - I have only ever parked my car in the lot next to the museum. I would call the museum directly & ask them where to park. 214-747-6660
