Empathy Museum

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. Working with the Migration Museum and TERN, the Empathy Museum has collected shoes and stories from refugees and migrants who have made London their home. The installation is part of the Migration Museum's latest project 'No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain'.
