We were fortunate to have a native Eskimo guide to lead us through the cultural center. The exhibits were interesting and the aid of a guide was invaluable.

Visited the Cultural Center recently while in Fairbanks. I had lived in Alaska as a child and have visited several times since. The Center has some very interesting information and a great place to get brochures and pamphlets about other things to do

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.
