We didn't have a lot of time (40 mins) so wish we had more time. I'd give this at least 60-90 minutes depending on your speed of reading signs and interests.

We were waiting for our room to be ready so we took a walk to the Bell site. I learned a lot about the man, his work and his family. This is well worth the time to visit and in 2017 it is free!!

We spent an hour here at the end of the day. Learned a lot about this modest man and his many inventions. Could have spent another half hour here.
