LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- You can learn about different walks of life thanks to an exhibit on loan from the Brooklyn Children's Museum.

The "Global Shoes" exhibit kicked off Monday morning at the Muhammad Ali Center. It creates a walk-through of different cultures through wearable artifacts. Kids can try on shoes from cultures from 16 different countries. They are even encouraged to share their own shoe stories.

"There's a memory trail that follows about shoes in our own lives and so when kids can write their own stories, it's a great way for them to internally you know sort of look at how this culture here and now how other kids around the world have their own stories through shoes," Jeanie Kahnke with the Muhammad Ali Center.

The bilingual exhibit runs through July 7th. Donating a pair of shoes to the non-profit Water Step will knock two dollars off adult admission. Those who want get in for free can register to volunteer to help.
