  • The novels Shoe Museum is a place that I visited in 79 and I saw in March 2015. It's very interesting to see, a history of the shoe of all humanity as well as objects that chronicle a bit the 2nd World War. I would be remiss not to revisit it on my next trip to novels.

  • Worth the drive. It's amazing this look at history through the prism of the shoe. There might perhaps be more videos (it's not always convenient to read the content of the labels placed at the bottom of the window). The atmosphere is quite dark... for not not to damage objects exposed.
