    Objects and Their Stories: Shoes

    On view May 31 to November 3, 2019

    People have been wearing shoes for thousands of years, from rudimentary sandals to today’s fashionable high-heeled boots. Explore the art, history, and science of footwear from around the world and through the years, illustrated by shoes from the Museum’s collection. Discover the fascinating stories behind elaborate beaded moccasins, hand-carved wooden shoes from the Netherlands, woven sandals from the tropics and more.

    This exhibition is a part of the Berkshire Museum’s ongoing Objects and Their Stories series, which presents the diverse cultural, scientific, and historical narratives of objects from the Museum’s collection.
