Housed in an elegant cloistered building there is a comprehensive exhibition of footware through the ages and with particular reference to theclose links Romans had with many couture houses until relatively recently, when cheaper facilities became available in Eastern Europe and Asia.

We had a great family visit in the Museum (which happened to be free because it was Saint Crepin's day, patron of shoemakers). The staff inside the museum is very helpful;. Nice boutique. The temporary exhibition nicely complemented the permanent collection. We didn't realize there...More

There are so many shoes spanning the ages. Loved seeing the history. The audio guide is a must to get the full story on the shoes. Amazing collection!

The International Footwear Museum is housed in a beautiful old convent structure. Shoes from all time periods and cultures are exhibited. The tools and machines used by cobblers over the years are also shown. It is interesting to see how styles and materials have evolved.

Enjoyed our hour's visit to this museum. The history of shoes displayed was very interesting. The videos which show how shoes are/were made, is worth the entrance fee. The old Convent is also very interesting to wander through.

I found it difficult to strike any interest in what is, a well laid out, well equipped and well presented museum. I had to walk through every part of the shoe museum: - clogs, tannery, shoe-making, history, temporary exhibitions, boots, famous shoemakers, and others that...More
