They are some of the most impressive chess set collections in the world! You can see them right now in their current home, the World Chess Hall Of Fame in the Central West End!
This non profit organization recently moved here from Miami, the building houses 3 floors of everything chess!
The first floor is the contemporary gallery, this exhibit changes twice a year. For one night you can also see the half piano, half chess board in action, it's a performance that has only been seen in the United States one other time.
The second floor is the exhibit that was created as if you were entering a jewelry box. You'll see impressive chess collection from one of the most extensive collections around.
The third floor is the permanent collection and features the hall of fame...on the wall you'll see pictures of chess grandmasters & contributors.
It's a place you'll definitely want to check out with your mates!
