We visited the museum as part of our visit to the Chena Hot Springs Resort. This is a little but nice museum. My 7 year old boy enjoyed it. Also, the Appletini served in the ice bar, is delicious!

Yes, you can easily spend a whole day. Depending on time of year you visit, there are hiking trails, ATV trip, Aurora viewing, Ice Museum tours, and of course, the hot springs to visit.
