World Chess Hall of Fame

The World Chess Hall of Fame (WCHOF) celebrates one of the world's classic and best-loved games through vibrant, engaging exhibitions and creative programming. The organization presents exhibitions that explore the history of the game as well as its remarkable impact on arts and culture. The WCHOF has featured work by artists Yoko Ono, M.C. Escher, and Victor Vasarely; legendary photographers Harry Benson and Anne Deniau; fashion designers Alexander McQueen, Gucci, and Victor & Rolf; and Saint Louis natives Tom Friedman and Michael Drummond. These unique shows and related programs are designed to appeal to both the chess novice and expert, defying expectations and enhancing knowledge of the game. Additionally, the WCHOF is home to Guinness World Records' Largest Chess Piece. 

Along with its sister organization, the Saint Louis Chess Club, and the WCHOF's award-winning gift shop, Q Boutique, the activities of the WCHOF have distinguished Saint Louis as the Chess Capital of the United States, a global destination for chess, art, and history lovers alike.
