Playing Together: Games

This hands-on exhibit invites kids of all ages to explore and play games from around the world and across the centuries.

Games of strategy, math, luck and physical coordination are all featured. The focal point is an oversized chess board with giant chess pieces. The exhibit also includes the House of Cards, a games library with over 50 popular contemporary board games visitors can check out and play in the gallery.
