Museum on footwear are rare. In fact, this is the only one in North America. The eye-catching deconstructivist building has the world’s largest collection of shoes and shoe-related stuff. There are four main exhibits. Of these, the permanent collection is the best, representing foot wear from practically every region in the globe and from nearly every time period in history, including Ancient Egypt and Greece and Rome. The Native American and Circumpolar section is fascinating. These include shoes worn by celebrities like Elton John, Queen Victoria and Elvis Presley. The other three exhibition are regularly rotated through time-limited thematic displays.

Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
I took my 7 year old daughter over the weekend and she loved it! Not too busy. She enjoyed the kids activities (colouring/art table and trying on shoes). She LOVED the scavenger hunt. Great place for a fun Sat or Sun afternoon!
I came here not knowing what to expect but was really surprised. This is a great place. The footwear displays span prehistoric times to present day. Well worth the visit.
Had a great visit to Bata shoe museum. Wonderful collection of various shoe designs, very helpful staff. Meticulously clean. I would recommend this place ! Review by RodenReviews
It's worth a visit if you've got time to kill and you have done all other touristy activities in Toronto. Not super impressive. Understandably, Sonja Bata the collector of shoes may not have an avid interest for sneakers, but it would have been very interesting to see a section of the museum devoted to the evolution of sneakers. The gift shop was pretty sad as well. They didn't even have a shoe horn!! Doesn't say much about a "shoe museum".
Fun fun fun. Every girl should see her favorite shoe here. Nice to see such a variety of designs and some celebrity shoes too!
