Thanks to a special partnership with the Jennings School District, The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum and the World Chess Hall of Fame, families can enjoy our Kings, Queens & Castles exhibit all summer long—free of charge!
This innovative children’s chess exhibit was co-created by The Magic House and the World Chess Hall of Fame and brings the game of chess to life while providing an engaging introduction to individual chess pieces and game strategy.
Families can enjoy free play in the exhibit as they walk across a drawbridge into a medieval castle complete with turret slides and learn how to prepare for a game by arranging a giant chess board with large-scale pieces, don a royal cape and sit on a majestic throne to become a king or queen, use their creativity to make a fanciful crown and shield and enjoy a game of chess.
Hours: Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm,
June 11 through July 27.
