With all the money and resources available to the St Louis chess club, this place is an utter disgrace. A waste of valuable real estate and an insult to the chess community. The so-called World Chess Hall of Fame literally has nothing to do with chess anymore, rather Begley chess related art exhibits. The place looks great and is well-staffed, but it is completely supported by inside of money.

If you challenge the workers to a game of chess they will not accept be they are too scared to lose. (Also they might be "on the clock")

Very nice museum with a lot of interesting things to see. The gift shop is also very nice.
