The Bata Shoe Museum’s collection of shoes- and footwear-related artefacts is one of the foremost in the world. For this reason, we are often asked to loan artefacts or send whole exhibitions to other institutions around the world. In order to further the BSM’s mandate to contribute to the knowledge and understanding of the role of footwear in the social and cultural life of humanity we are excited to be able to offer visitors to other institutions the opportunity to experience parts of the BSM collection. Here is a sample of some of the destinations where BSM artefacts are currently located or will soon be traveling to.
