“Over a thousand shoes”
Discover the treasures of North America's charming and surprising shoe museum. Over a thousand shoes and related artifacts (from a collection numbering over 13,000) are on exhibit in architect Raymond Moriyama's award-winning five floor structure. The Museum celebrates the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. Footwear on display ranges from Chinese bound foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamourous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history and a collection of 20th-century celebrity shoes are reflected in the semi-permanent exhibition, All About Shoes. Three other galleries feature changing exhibitions, so there's always something new to see.
This was an unplanned stop because it was pouring rain; but when SHOES are involved, I'm in. We spent 2 hours. It is fascinating, well curated, very cleanly designed. Just the right amount of historical and cultural information. Really enjoyed it!
