Definitely do the Musuem of Northern Arizona as that is at least 2-3 hours. You'll not only explore the Indian Cultures, but get an idea to the geology into Northern Arizona.

It might be too cold now, but during the warmer seasons (no snow), you could take the alphine lift up one of the peaks and get a decisive view of the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

How about a stroll of the downtown locality of Flagstaff and window shop?

Plenty of hiking trails and parks in/around Flagstaff. Visit Montezuma's Well and Castle down south of I-17 (possibly as far away as one hour.
