Northampton Museum reflects the town's proud standing as Britain's boot and shoe capital and the history of the town through the ages. 

Life and Sole shows the history of shoemaking using audio visual displays, interactive exhibits and a re-creation of an old shoe factory. 'Followers of Fashion' continues the story of footwear and celebrates shoe fashions through the centuries. The story of Northampton's history from the Stone Age to the 20th century is told with objects, sound and film. Both decorative arts and fine arts are represented in outstanding collections, particularly the Oriental ceramics and the 15th to 18th century Italian paintings.
