The King piece at the World Chess Hall of Fame measures over 14 feet tall with a 6 foot diameter base. Certified as the world's largest chess piece by Guinness on April 24, 2012. Checkmate.

Definitely not your usual "Hall of Fame" or "museum" experience, to say the least. But an interesting place nonetheless. Check it out, fellow STLers.
