The Shoehorn Museum is dedicated to the history and art of the shoehorn. The collection has been amassed over decades from around the globe.
Visiting the Museum is a one of a kind experience, a trip through the function, art and history of the humble shoehorn. Your docent is typically the collector himself - Dr. Forest Tennant - a world renowned physician and the city's chief historian.
The Museum's home is inside the oldest commercial building in the city of West Covina, a suburb in the greater Los Angeles area - about 25 miles east of downtown L.A.
No "life list" of visits to quirky and one of a kind museums is complete without touring the Shoehorn Museum.
