Very organized and courteous museum staff. The staff provides a catalogue of shoes and bags manufacturers to choose from should a visitor wants to order custom-made shoes.

It was an okayish visit. If you are here for a well spent day in a museum might as well visit book museum nearby (around 30 mins from here). This museum contains shoes as the name suggest but could at least make the experience more engaging and more informative as why Marikina became the shoe capital etc.

I wish the government's tourism office could improve the content of the tour and maybe think of more interactive/interesting activities inside the museum. So much potential.

A very interesting museum for all the Filipinos and foreigners to visit. Imelda definitely had a varied collections of shoes and Marikina is the right place to exhibit. The Shoe Capital!

A small museum with friendly helpful staff . Many international and Filipino celebrities have donated a pair of their shoes. But the highlight surely has to be Imelda Marcos' collection of shoes . Can't help but have a sneaky feeling the museum is secretly funded by her. Captions were unduly sympathetic to her. No mention of the excesses and corruption... More

You'll be quite surprised to see a world wide known attraction all to be in that very very small place.

I would say this is a worthwhile visit for anyone with enthusiasm for shoes, since 800 out of 3000 pairs of Imelda Marcos' shoes are on display, and what would a trip to Manila be without coming close to that?! It's fair to say the shoes here on show in cabinets are looking mostly a bit tired, which surprised me... More

It's a small one but it's supposed to be designed like a one huge walk in closet of shoes. And Imelda Marcos' entire shoe collection was transferred here. Yep, the small place is actually big for all these pairs of shoes.

The tiny two-storey structure of a museum is a a five minute walk from the city's church (Our Lady of the Abandoned) in the center of town. The entrance fee is 50 pesos per adult, 40 pesos for senior citizens (60 years old and above) upon presentation of senior citizen ID. By the entrance are displayed some instruments and pieces...

We were initially drawn to the museum because we were curious to see how much of Imelda Marcos' legendary shoe collection was on display. And even though it's only a portion, the volume of shoes on display is still impressive. The museum is small and doesn't take more than 30 minutes to stroll through - unless you really want to...
