The Shoe Quarter is closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day

In our Knowledge Center
, you are never out of learning.

Our floors offer numerous attractions with whatever perspective you come with. This applies not least to our Knowledge Center. Here you will find library and media library, an educational center, an ever-expanding materials cabinet and the compact auditorium. 

You can feel the fruit leather and all those other materials - old and trendy -, browse through magazines and books, pick up images, attend lectures. Pupils can come to do their paper or talk, legal advisors want to research trademark law, archaeologists and historians have already raised their fingers. Fashion students and makers can get plenty of inspiration here. In short, the Knowledge Center is the place for that different learning process.

"With us, it's more
than watching and learning."

In addition to looking and learning, the Shoe Quarter is about participation and awareness. We want to offer new target groups an entrance into the cultural world and hopefully point the way to other museums. Because shoes are part of the identity for young and old, for rich and poor, for every color and every individual. The shoe belongs to the world and to everyone. In numerous forms. That includes multifaceted stories. Those we want to tell, we want to make visitors think about 'their' footwear, where it comes from, how it can be made with respect for the world.
