Guardians of the World’s Largest Mechanical Puzzle Collection Relocate to Italy

George and Roxanne Miller, owners of the world’s largest collection of mechanical puzzles, have recently relocated their extensive collection from Puzzle Palace in Boca Raton, Florida, to a 15th-century, 52-room castle in Panicale, central Italy. The Miller collection comprises over 80,000 puzzles, including more than 5,000 Rubik’s Cubes, over 7,000 wooden burr puzzles, and 140 brass, bronze, and gold puzzle sculptures by Spanish artist Miguel Berrocal. The couple decided to embark on a road trip across the United States, visiting puzzler friends and acquiring additional puzzles along the way, before shipping their collection to Italy in five 40-foot containers. The road trip served as a “last hurrah” before settling into their new home in the Italian castle.

The Millers’ collection includes a diverse array of puzzles, ranging from Rubik’s Cubes and wooden burr puzzles to intricate sculptures by Miguel Berrocal. Puzzle Palace in Florida was dedicated to housing the vast collection, which occupied not only the mansion but also a nearby museum. The couple’s decision to buy a castle in Italy allowed them to house their extensive collection in a fitting setting. During their road trip, the Millers visited friends and puzzle enthusiasts, collecting additional puzzles along the way. The journey culminated in the shipment of the puzzles to Italy, marking the beginning of a new chapter for the world’s largest collection of mechanical puzzles in its new home.
