Museum of Chess

The Chess Museum opened its doors in Moscow on September 25, 2014. The museum found its place within the walls of the famous Central House of Chess (formerly known as the Central Chess Club) on Gogolevsky Boulevard, a few hundred meters from Kremlin. The building itself is an old mansion of historical value which has been restored and decorated in the recent years.

 

Actually the museum has been functioning since 1980 but the exhibition was held in another chamber of a smaller size. Moreover, the display was closed during the last few years. Now, the Chess Museum has re-opened in the larger premises and also became much more comfortable to visit. Besides, the display has grown a lot due to contributions by many chess players and enthusiasts: even 3 rooms aren't enough now to hold all the exhibits so that the substantial part is kept in the depository premises not open for visitors.

Address   Moscow, Gogolevskiy boul., 14
