Marikina Shoe Museum

I have gotten the chance of visiting The Marikina Shoe Museum located in J.P. Rizal Street.


Through the courtesy of Mam Jane Ballesteros and Mam Monette Berin of Marikina Tourism Office , I had this chance of visiting a museum with an extensive display of shoes in the country.

It houses 800 of the 3,000 and more of Imelda Marcos' infamous expensive collection of designer shoes.

The curator said that the museum was built  through the initiation of then Marikina Mayor Bayani Fernando.



The building was said to be a former house in collonial Spanish era and was redesigned to become a museum in the modern times.


The museum is open everyday from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon and have an entrance fee of 50.00 per head.

The curator said that all of these shoes are donated by celebrated and well-known people of The Philippines.
    
Take a peek inside the wide gallery of shoes and be amazed:
