Public Shoe Exhibit at Weyerhaeuser Museum

In the first half of 2014, the Morrison County Historical Society mounted a shoe exhibit using shoes and other leg and foot-related items from its collection. The exhibit was called “Saunter: On the Path of the Pedestrian.”

As part of the exhibit, museum staff took photos of visitors’ shoes during the summer of 2014 and posted them in exhibit cases.

To continue the shoe theme, in November the museum put out a call for people to bring a pair of their shoes in for a public shoe exhibit to be displayed throughout the month of December. Over 50 pairs of shoes were loaned for this special exhibit. Here are some (most!) of them.

Holiday Hours at the Weyerhaeuser Museum

The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum will be closed on Christmas Day and on New Year’s Day.

It will be open regular hours on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.).

In addition, on New Year’s Eve, the museum will be hosting a Candlelight Hike with Lindbergh State Park and the Lindbergh Historic Site from 5 – 8 p.m. All are welcome to ring in the New Year at this festive event. Our Christmas tree and public shoe exhibit will remain on display to visitors during the event.

In the meantime, enjoy a few pictures of our tree, which is decorated with origami shoes. Happy holidays, everyone!
