We visit this place every year. Nice exhibits-especially shoes. As back on the days I used to be Spice Girls fan. Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) shoes impress me every single time. Worth a visit especially if you want discover more about Nrthampton
Had 2 hours to kill before an appointment and on a walk through the town found the museum and thought I would pop in. Was very pleasantly surprised, not only was entry free but the museum was interesting and up to date. Will definitely be returning with my Children.
Fabulous exhibits from the shoe industry, but lighting is very low and sometimes you can't see the details of the exhibits. Another negative was some interactive exhibits failing to deliver.

The shoes here are simply amazing, words cannot explain how much I love... 更多
