We paid to go into the museum and see the exhibits, but you can see the tar pits without having to pay, as it's a public park. It was interesting and the kids loved watching the activity from the main pit. There are a few...More

There is a large parking lot behind the museum. It is not free to park in it though. I think it was $12. You can also park on the streets around it but it is tight around there and there are meters. There is no time limit to park in the parking lot, just until the museum closes. There are also another museums or two next to the pits so if you wanted to look into them you could leave your car in the lot and just walk to them as well.
