Facility Rentals

Imagine encouraging them to explore their very own private museum during the evening! You could suggest that they take a look at the medieval knight's "sabaton", or they might prefer to admire exquisite silk-embellished evening shoes from times long past.

Winner of a City of Toronto Design Award, the Bata Shoe Museum offers a dramatic setting sure to engage guests of all interests. Its expansive modern style features details forged in glass, steel, leather and wood. Our galleries showcase highlights of one of the world's foremost collections of footwear. The story of the Museum itself—the result of the vision of one determined woman—is also inspiring. Add the catering expertise of some of the city's top chefs, and you're guaranteed a unique and memorable event.
