A Museum for Shoes?

The Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Canada is a museum you won’t find anywhere else in the world! Devoted entirely to shoes, the museum features historic slippers from all over the world, as well as celebrity kicks and even some socks! A great museum for kids and adults alike, there is something for every generation. Kids can play and learn at interactive stations throughout the museum, as adults watch movies about some of the people who once owned the shoes in the museum today. Located centrally in downtown Toronto it’s easy to get to by subway or car and there are lots of other things to do while you’re there!

Tips:

  • Thursday evening 5PM-8PM is pay-what-you-can, with a suggested donation of $5! The perfect way to end a day in downtown Toronto!
  • Listen to a few of the 2-3 minute Shoe of the Month podcasts posted on the Beta Museum website to get excited for your trip: http://www.batashoemuseum.ca/podcasts/index.shtml
  • Check with any museum memberships you have at home to see if they cover admission to the Beta Shoe Museum in Toronto, when I went with my family we got in using our MFA Boston membership!
