In addition to our popular semi-permanent exhibition, All About Shoes, the BSM has three galleries for changing exhibitions, ensuring that each visit to the museum offers a new experience. Exhibitions generally run for a year, with 1-2 new exhibitions opening each year. Through the creation of innovative exhibitions the museum strives to enlighten and entertain visitors of all ages.
