What people are saying about Bata Shoe Museum

Overall rating

(25 reviews)

It was a good museum and the entire family learned a lot. We especially liked the sneaker exhibit. But we wanted more shoes, we were expecting a whole wall of shoes!

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!

Sayyid Asad's place was a nice place. Asad allowed us to check out at 4pm as we pleaded for such due to time differences at our final destination.

The day I went it wasn’t possible to see the third floor exhibit. But the rest was fantastic specially the históricos shoes….

Cool and unique museum. Definitely worth visiting during a visit to Toronto.
