Northampton Museum

 
 

 

 

Northampton Museum and Art Gallery reflects Northampton's standing as Britain's boot and shoe capital by housing a collection of boots and shoes which is now the largest in the world.

Fascinating footwear worn throughout the ages is just one of the attractions in the museum.

The Life and Sole gallery provides insights into Northampton's history as a shoe manufacturing town, including how shoes are made - past and present. 'The Followers of Fashion' Gallery highlights the incredible variety of shoe designs that have adorned the feet of our forebears.
