Empathy Museum

Empathy Museum: A Mile in My Shoes

What is it like to have spent years in prison, or to be a child growing up in Tehran, or to have rediscovered love in your eighties? Empathy Museum could help you find out. Explore how empathy can have the power to transform our personal relationships and tackle global challenges.

An interactive shoe shop, A Mile in My Shoes invites you to (literally) step into someone else’s shoes and embark on a mile-long physical, emotional and imaginative journey to see the world through their eyes. The Empathy Museum has collected shoes and stories from all over the UK and Australia, including some local voices with resonant tales to tell.
