In S. João da Madeira, a city where development is based on a traditional know-how, the Shoe Museum was born.

Here the experienced hands of the craft and the creativity of the new designers dialogue. It tells the story of shoe over time. Stories of lives dedicated to the shoes and shoes that have marked lives are uncovered.

The Shoe Museum emerges in an innovative way in the national museological panorama by portraying the memory of the shoe industry in S. João da Madeira and the reality of shoe  design in Portugal in the 20th century, pointing to paths of the technological and creative vanguard of the 21st century .

This is an option dictated by the historical importance of S. João da Madeira in the context of the production of shoe at national level and by the physical and symbolic framework of the Museum in a more comprehensive policy based on culture and creativity as factors of local development.

More than a mere exhibition of artifacts, the Shoe Museum is a space for learning, creativity and experimentation that will require its visitors an interactive and permanent questioning posture.
