Hi We have been there with 2 children (7 and 4 y.o.) and we have had an incredible day in the museum. There are lots of thing for children and it’s also interesting for adults. Good option to spend a day in.

There are five floors to explore each with a different theme. The brochure says people tend to spend 2.5hrs on average but we spent more than 3hrs. If you go to Leeds make sure you visit.
