About
Discover the treasures of North America’s world-renowned shoe museum. Located in Toronto, Canada, the Bata Shoe Museum has over a thousand shoes and related artefacts (from a collection numbering over 13,000) in architect Raymond Moriyama’s award-winning five-floor structure. The BSM celebrates the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. Footwear on display ranges from Chinese bound foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamorous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history and a collection of 20th-century celebrity shoes are reflected in the semi-permanent exhibition, All About Shoes. Three other galleries feature changing exhibitions, so there’s always something new to see.

Very cool
Sep 2020
On the top floors there are two special exhibits which I enjoyed tremendously. One focused on gold but the final one focused on liberty and equality, which looks at how the challenges of women and minorities have been reflected in shoes and fashion.

Excellent place to visit
Jul 2020
The Bata Shoe Museum is beautiful. We had a lot of fun looking at the shoe collection, so many shoes that seem impossible to wear! My son wanted to see Elvis Presley's shoes but they were not on display, so that gives us an excuse to return. I must add that during these complex COVID19 times, the museum was incredibly clean, hand-sanitizer available everywhere, and we felt very safe walking through the halls. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Altogether a wonderful experience.

There were no lines and the staff member was not familiar with the process so it took longer. I was annoyed because I had limited time and the process backfired.

Who knew a shoe museum could beagreatway to spend a morning
Nov 2019
I had no idea a museum like this even existed. We spent about 2 hours there, intrigued from the moment we saw the window display of flowers made from shoes. The main exhibit traces the history of the shoe from prehistoric times to the present. The two special exhibits were equally excellent. Signage was very informative and interesting.

Far Better Than Expected Museum
May 2019
I had a few hours to kill until a matinee theater show, so I went in here. It was far better and more interesting than I expected it would be. I so wish I'd had my camera, but the lighting is kept very dim to avoid damaging the old materials, they likely wouldn't have turned out well anyway. It was really interesting and well worth the time to go through. There is a lot of reading to do if you read every display description, but they are very informative. It's really unique and different and memorable, I highly recommend it, even to people that are not that into shoes.

History Buffs and Shoe Buffs UNITE!
Nov 2019
(Shoe buffs...see what I did there?) Seriously tho... this is a fascinating look at the evolution and development of footwear across time for various regions and cultures around the globe. This was an educational, fun, and inexpensive way to spend a few hours on a rainy and windy Toronto day, but I'd love coming back again any day. There's a permanent exhibition on the bottom two floors and two other exhibitions that rotate every 6 months or so. Highly recommend!

Very interesting place with numerous collection of footwear from ancient people, different places, and up to modern times. Informative, full of insights, foot fetish oriented. Lovely shoes and exhibits with decent admission fee.
