Kids & Family

The World Chess Hall of Fame presents a variety of exhibition-related programming for adults and children. Family Day provides visitors with an opportunity to learn more about the exhibition by engaging in hands-on activities inspired by the objects and ideas presented in the galleries. Sessions are open and run for two hours. Toddler Tuesday is designed for children ages birth through three, and provides a stimulating learning environment for children and their caregivers. Sessions last one hour.
