News Shoe Museum with virtual tours

Staying at home is no longer the same as being far away from your favorite places, at least when it comes to the museums in São João da Madeira. From now on, free virtual tours are available at the Shoe’s and Hat’s Museums.

This is a new cultural and educational tool that allows exploring the contents of both museums in an autonomous, dynamic and interactive way. Also, it enables a greater proximity of the museums’ Educational Service to its diverse public, such as schools (teachers and students), older people, people with disabilities, families, tourists and fans of thematic museums.

The virtual tours to these museums in São João da Madeira allow a broader cultural accessibility, strengthening its connection to the community and local public and, simultaneously, enhancing new connections with other national and international segments, such as the entrepreneurial and creative sectors.

"Sensitive to the actual epidemiological context, which lead to the closure of museums and a general lockdown, a greater proximity of the Shoe’s and Hat’s Museums to those who aren’t able to physically enjoy cultural spaces has taken place”, said the Direction of the Museums in a statement.

The virtual tours can be accessed from a computer, a tablet or a phone, anywhere and at any time of the day, and are now available at the museum’s social media pages and websites:
