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!
