A new exhibition installation features 90 of the museum’s unique chess sets and chess-related works of art. Wall-mounted cases hold complete boards and sets, enabling easy viewing by visitors of all sizes, especially young people.
The gallery is named in honor of George E. Muehleck Jr. who loved the game of chess.
