Are you looking to switch things up and explore across the river in Pennsylvania? Michener Museum is just the place for you. Doylestown is bustling with fabulous restaurants, fun shopping and now the museum’s new exhibit Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes — a mash-up of art, history, fashion, and architecture!
Bring your fashion-obsessed friends for an immersive and inspiring experience! The exhibit, open from September 24 to January 15, 2023, will feature women who designed, manufactured, sold, and collected footwear, and tell the story of how shoes are not only made for walkin’ but how they have come to be symbols, bringing influence to society.
Explore the 100-plus shoes on display assembled by designer Stuart Weitzman and businesswoman and philanthropist Jane Gershon Weitzman. You will come across shoes from all walks of life, from a pair of satin wedding shoes from 1838 to the iconic red high-heeled shoes from Broadway’s stellar show, Kinky Boots!
Learn more about the new exhibit on their website today. Admission for members is free, otherwise, it’s a $15 entry fee for adults, $13 for seniors, $8 for college students, $5 for children ages 6-18, and free for children under the age of 6.
