Family and Children’s Programs

The World Chess Hall of Fame presents a variety of exhibition-related programming for adults and children. Family Days provide 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. The WCHOF’s Early Childhood and Preschool Programs are designed for children ages birth through five and provide a stimulating learning environment for children and their caregivers.
