Before going know what you want to see. The buildings are divided by subject. Science, is first then art, then history. Without a plan you won't be able to see them all. You will need five to six hours or more.

I visited The Springfield Museums during Indian Day. The museums are very well laid out and on this particular day, there were hundreds of Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts who brought there bikes in to show. I wish I had more time to visit.
