Overall an enjoyable experience, but didn't realize that there were no Georgia O'Keeffe paintings on the premises. There is a good paleontology exhibit there. Good gift shop.

I stayed in a room so I don't have first hand knowledge of the RV area. I believe it is though as I recall seeing a few pets there.
