1 to 2 hours sounds about right. There are tons of reading materials on display.
Lots to read if you have time and patience, half-day if you’re really into it.
Depends on your level of interest. We only read a couple of the articles and took pictures of exhibits. We were probably out in 30. Worth the stop though.
Thanks for asking this question! Our family of five was there for about three hours. There are movies/documentaries to watch, a long timeline to read, just a lot to absorb.
Two hours if you are just walking through the museum portion if you want to read any of the vast amounts of information available. They do also play a movie which I didn’t have time to watch while I was there unfortunately. And then if you want to spend any time in the large research library looking through things then add time for that. Honestly if you are casually interested a couple hours is plenty, if you are more into UFO’s then spending an entire afternoon between the museum and research library would be easy.
2 hours is definitely enough time unless you want to watch one of the movies they show in the theatre. Like others have said, there is a lot of reading on the display walls but you can't read it all. It is incredibly interesting to walk around and read pieces of it.
I think we were there 90 minutes.
We spent almost two hours but did not see the movie. Unfortunately we arrived in the afternoon and the last movie of the day had already started. We tried to get in to see at least part of it, but it was standing room only. There is a lot to read. Reading some of it and then seeing the movie and then reading more would be the ideal plan. We also stopped in the visitor center down the street. We didn't find any of the surrounding shops to be of interest.
I’d say at least an hour.
There is a lot more stuff to read than to look at or do. We spent almost 2 hours there. We saw the short film and read a lot of the articles. We could have spent a little more time if we had it. But if you have small children, I don’t think you’ll need as much time.
I'm very interested in the topic and I spent about 2 hours there. I read many of the interpretive documents by the displays. After a while, there's so much, you can't read it all.
I agree, 1 hour. Maybe 2 if you look into some of the surrounding “museums” and stores. Prepare to be underwhelmed.
