A Unique Museum
Welcome to the Bata Shoe Museum
Discover the treasures of North America's charming and surprising shoe museum. Over a thousand shoes and related artefacts (from a collection numbering over 13,000) are on exhibit in architect Raymond Moriyama's award-winning four-storey structure.
The Museum 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 glamourous 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.
