A few hits on the Internet mention "Museo del Calzado" (Shoe Museum) in Mexico City, but I find it hard to believe that not more information is available about it.

Is it a real museum, visitable as of 2015?

I am not looking for the museum in Spain with the same name.


Apparently it is just a shoe shop that has a small "museum".

It is at Bolívar 27, Col. Centro Histórico.

By the way, this is the (different) place that Google Maps gives:

That'd be the one mentioned on Wikitravel:

Museo del Calzado (Shoe Museum), Bolivar 27, 1st Floor. Private collection of old shoes from the 18th, 19th and 20th century. The museum belongs to the shoe store "El Borcegui", established in 1865 and still selling shoes today.

I found a blog from 2008 (with a comment in 2009) also about going there.

And Visit Mexico (the tourism website) still has it listed on their museums page, so it's almost certainly open.
