Recently, I interviewed with a company and spent three hours there. I
met with the HR guy, then with various departments and project teams
(they had multiple openings due to expansion), and in the process of
meeting with so many people, got a pretty good tour of the building.
I didn't know ahead of time how much time I was going to spend there,
but I'm glad I had taken the day off!
BTW, I received an offer but turned it down due to the restructuring of
my current position.
