Key artifacts visitors may examine include an oversized skeletal model of the human foot, plaster casts of feet, a fluoroscope commonly used to aid in shoe-fitting found in shoe stores until the 1950s, and a spinning Zoetrope, a nineteenth-century forerunner of the motion picture projector that illustrates the gait cycle, the process of walking. Also on display is one of the world's largest shoes worn by Mr. Robert Wadlow of Alton, Illinois, who grew to 8' 11.1" and wore a size 44 shoe.
