  • For the shoes hoards, this would be haven. The scientist nerd not so much. Different shoes through the years. Young children may think it is boring.  more »
  • A very unusual museum, filled with shoes from around the world and around the times. An easy and entertaining mid afternoon experience. Very accessible and reasonable.  more »

  • Cute museum for shoes through the centuries. Easy fun to do. Can be done in an hour easily. Street meter parking best option. Icing on the car was a presentation from staff on different shoes that you were able to touch and see. With historic info. Famous people worn shoe exhibits. Definitely for fashion students.
  • Smaller than I imagined, but great exhibits, friendly staff, and interesting facts- plus it only takes about an hour to get through. I wouldn’t take young kids here, but teenage girls might love this. Not a strong representation of men’s shoes, but not surprised by that. Very reasonable prices, and a great deal for students!
