It depends how much you would like to see and do. You should allow an hour at the very least. Your ticket is valid all day, so you can come in and out as many times as you like. If you want to read all about the exhibits and use all the interactive features, you could easily spend most of the day at the museum - it really is up to you. With the fun spread over five floors there is plenty to keep children entertained.
