About Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto

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.

  • I was very surprised to find out that this meseum was very good. There is a lot of interesting info as well as A LOT of shoes. If you have the time you shown check it out.

  • 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.
