Description

The traditional Aurland Shoe is today produced in Norway’s last shoe factory. The visitor centre show traditional craft through exhibitions where you get insight in today’s shoemakers work! 



The Aurland Shoe you see today has been produced since the middle of the 1930s. Previously there existed 19 different shoe factories in Aurland, and at the peak nearly 100 people where employed as shoemakers. Aurland Shoe Factory is the only surviving factory that produces the characteristic Aurland Shoe. Today a visitor centre invites you to discover the history and knowledge of this traditional craft. Visit one of the remaining Shoe Factory in Norway and discover the artists at work. In addition to shoe production, the visitor centre offers informative exhibitions, and sale of shoes and other leather artifacts. 
 
The Shoe Factory is based on the Canadian model Économusée. The mission of the Économusée is to promote and keep alive traditional crafts and knowledge. An Économusée is not a traditional museum. It is designed for smaller industries specializing in arts and crafts. They are open for the public, offering an interactive, recreational and enriching experience. Discover the artist at work!
