A weekend in Schwyz

We’ll present our medieval collection this week-end, Oct. 29 and 30 2011 at the Forum of Swiss History in Schwyz for the inauguration of a new permanent exhibit where some of our shoes will be part of the exhibit.

You can find us in medieval costume inside the Museum. I a way it does sound funny: Our Shoe Museum in a Museum ;O)

The little girl on the poster seems to point out how much it would be needed to know more about ancient footwear ;O)
