Perhaps you've heard of "hole in the wall" attractions. That's literally true here, not just a turn of phrase. Literally 4 holes in the wall! Easy and fun.

The GIANT SHOE MUSEUM in Seattle, WA's Pike Place Market, opened last month. It's a coin op museum featuring giant shoes. One gallery shows the World's Largest Collection of Giant Shoes. One shows an actual shoe worn by Robert Wadlow, and the third main gallery displays the Colossus, a 5 foot long wing tip from the 20s.

Other galleries explain the "Giant Shoes of Mystery" and the $1000 reward for them.
