3-4 hours andvtey to avoid holidays and weekends. When it’s busy it’s hard to see the exhibits

A minimum of 3-4 hours. I would definitely suggest engaging with the docent at the crash site. You will learn much more from their knowledge than you will reading the various plaques. The docent made our trip.

We spent about an hour in the Visitor Center because it was raining. You could possibly spend 3-5 hours. We didn't get to the walkway in the field. GUARANTEED you WON'T rush through. A very emotional time.

You need a good 3-4 hours to take in all that is offered. Very sobering.

We spent about 3-4 hours, including walking the 2 mile path around the field, which isn’t particularly scenic, and attending a Ranger-led talk on the crash. It requires at least 2 hours to adequately tour the Visitors’ Center and read the exhibits, then walk down to the Memorial Wall and site of the crash. There are several interesting audio posts around the Memorial grounds that you can listen to through your cell phone. And now the Tower of Voices is open and certainly worth a stop.

I think a good time is between 1 & 3 hours as mentioned. It depends upon how much time is spent viewing all of the signs near the wall of names, walking through the entire exhibit & when the visitor feels as though he/she has seen enough. I found this by accident & so happy that I did.

We had (2) 16 year old boys with us and it was raining pretty hard. We spent about 1 hour inside and saw most all of the displays and used the interactive parts in this time. The new chimes were not up and running so we only glanced at them. Depending on what all you want to take in as little as 1 hour to as long as 3 hours should you walk the grounds as well

You can spend as long or as little as you would like. We spent about 45 minutes there. We could have easily spent longer as we did not go through the museum. Also the new tower is open now that was not when we were there. I hope you stop-it was unforgettable.

I would say 2-3 hours should give you time to experience the entire memorial.

It's basically self-guided and it's a fair distance walk to the Memorial at the impact site. It is quite sobering, but a must see, if you are in the area. I'd plan a minimum of 2 hours, if you have it. You won't regret the time spent and may even stay a bit longer. Enjoy!

We spent 2 hours and it wasn't enough. I wish we had allowed 3 - 4 hours in our schedule.

We spent 2 hours. Maybe an hour in the visitor center and an hour at the crash site. I know people are saying 3-4 but the visitor center wasn't super crowded at all. And there was maybe 5 people at the crash site. We had a nice talk with a park ranger for maybe 20mns down there.

Allow 4 hours. It's a bit out of the way so stop and eat prior. The docents are very knowledgeable and provide more insight than just reading the plaques.

Anyone can come and go at his/her leisure and remain as long as that "sad" yet Historic Huge Monument is and remains open. Judy and I had to stay just over 3 hours - I had to read about a friend I lost. Although no-one may step on the "Sacred" ground (at the exact large spot 93 hit Mother Earth) - it was well worth praying approximately 50 yards away.
