    Super collection of amazing types of shoes and the stories telling how footwear has evolved from the beginning of time! Perfect time to go since not alot of tourists in TO yet. Easy subway right around the corner. Only thing that should be improved is lighting in "decades" exhibits. Dark and hard to see them!

    The Bata Shoe Museum is a great experience for Mom and Daughter's Day. You can combine the pass with the Textile and the Gardiner Museum if you wish, for a better deal. The visit was smooth and pleasant, the organizers gave enough time in between visits , so it is easy to keep social distance. Considering Canada as an official bilingual country, I was expecting the info and descriptions to be also in French not only in English. You can admire different piece of shoes' art in multiple colors, materials and learn a lot about history and countries' traditions. Due to the pandemic all the activities inside the Museum have been suspended, but visit was still enjoyable!

    Not really a museum on the Bâta family but rather on the shoe as a whole, its symbolism through the ages, technical innovations, etc. Very interesting!
