“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.

Three other galleries feature changing exhibitions, so there's always something new to see.
