You could probably spend 2-3 hours there. The fact that the museum is intertwined with actual laboratories adds to a feeling of "work in progress"!
An interesting museum in the area of McGill University. Some special, beautiful collections and a way for parents to bring here kids to learn them about the Earth's history and evolution. In a beautiful day of this summer I was so pleased to visit it! Go for it!
A completely free museum at the heart of the McGill University campus, easily accessible from the Metro. While it can't compare to massive natural history museums like the ROM or Tyrell, the exhibits are very thorough and I expect kids will get a kick out of the dinosaur skeletons and mummies.

I highly recommend a visit to the museum (1-1/2 – 2 hours) – it is not huge but they have a little bit of everything! (how can you go wrong with mummies, shrunken heads and fossils of everything?)
