We spent sometime there learning about Alaska's history and culture. We got to know how fun it would be to visit Fairbanks in the winter time! The displays and videos there are absolutely amazing! We also got souvenirs from a gift shop located there.

So we went there. Our answer would be 1 1/2 hours to enjoy all the exhibits. More if you want to see the films.
