We had the opportunity to catch one of three shows, M-F in the summer, with local native American children. Very educational. Examples of native dance and humor. We loved to see the pride the next generation has for their heritages.

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.
