The museum moved to Florida in 2001. What's left is perhaps the nicest chess facility in the nation. It's not for everyone. In fact, if you are not there to buy a chess set or for a specific event (they offer classes for children and adults and have tournaments four or five times a month) there is no reason to go.

The photos and posters on the walls will interest only the serious chess player or historian.

It does not cost anything to stop by.

This Chess Center Museum is just that - a tribute to great American chessman throughout the decades. It offers biographical information on some of the world's greatest chest players, like how they got their start and some of the notable games they played. My point: who cares?! Chess is a rather dull game, and while excelling in it does require great intelligence and strategy, but it isn't coming up with a cure for cancer or improving our lives. I can't relate to it, so maybe an avid chess player or chess fan would enjoy it, but the common public should check out DC's other fine museums.

PROS:
CONS: Boring, Boring, Boring
