    I was always really interested in visiting this museum but when I went I thought it was okay. The shoes were interesting but I was hoping for a larger collection. I finished looking everything in 15 mins

    I have heard many times about Bata Shoe Museum and I got interested to visit it. From the website I came to know that it is situated in downtown Toronto,Canada. It collects, researches, preserves and exhibit footwear from around the world. The museum designed by Raymond Moriyama. So finally I visit here and it didn’t depressed me. Really an interesting place to pass time.

    Nice collection, interesting facts, lighting is way too dark in a couple areas. Decent admission price and gift store items aren’t overly expensive. Unfortunately, although I enjoyed the collection and museum, my time here was the most annoying museum experience I’ve had because there were kids literally screaming and running around.

    No fetish required to enjoy this place: fashionistas and vintage clothing enthusiasts are gonna love Bata. When I first read about this place during my last-minute visit to Toronto I was expecting this to be a small boutique museum, but Bata spans across several floors and the exterior architecture is something to behold as a segment of triangular-shaped glass is reminiscent of the Lourve. I was greeted by the charming women at the gift shop and we chatted fashion for a bit. They gave me pamphlets and a rundown of each floor before sending me off with a smile.I decided to make like Drake and start from the bottom… floor, that is. The downstairs area basically encompassed the entire history of shoedom, starting from centuries ago and spanning across cultures. Being something of a shoe hoarder, I was in heaven seeing real and replicated footwear that represented those from all walks of life (get it?!) with really interesting historical tidbits and interactive elements that made the still-life dioramas come alive. Another floor emphasized shoes in pop culture, with samples of shoes donated from their real celebrity owners, from Elvis to Elton John and a short show about each shoe’s owner.The top floor was my favorite. It was pretty simple, but it consisted of lots of vintage footwear along with apparrel and accessories (I drooled over the vintage Louis Vuitton luggage display) and how fashion changed with the times. I loved the historical element paired with the fashion that gave the entire museum another dimension. A lot of museums can be stuffy, but I loved the fun and playful vibe here. This was a really enjoyable place to spend an afternoon!

    I was here a couple years ago, and as a shoe aficionado the museum was a perfect introduction in the long history of shoes.They have everything from the earliest known form of footwear to famous shoes worn by celebrities and everything in between!Very well displayed and great descriptions and information on the shoes that you’re viewing! Great place for a lover of shoes!
