In Shoemaker’s Shoes
Try your shoemaker skills, explore virtual objects
Here you can see selected items from the shoemaker’s hut in the Old Kuopio Museum as virtual 3D objects. Discover the stories of shoes, the steps involved in making a shoe, and the popularity of Finnish coffee-drinking!
3D objects can be rotated and viewed from different angles, both near and far. Audio narration lets you hear the story of the object in question or learn more about it. Alternatively, you can read the audio narration as text immediately below the object. Photos, videos and texts further illustrate and delve into themes.
Unfortunately the 3D-objects can not be viewed using Internet Explorer – web browser.
