I filed a suggestion that the documentation on "MethodInformation" be
improved in the future.

In general, I usually, try "Properties" and "Methods" on objects. Some of
them offer additional functionality (while the one in this case can be
accessed via the anatomy package (tutorial/NDSolvePackages#120436095))
