I took my 7 year old daughter over the weekend and she loved it! Not too busy. She enjoyed the kids activities (colouring/art table and trying on shoes). She LOVED the scavenger hunt. Great place for a fun Sat or Sun afternoon!

I came here not knowing what to expect but was really surprised. This is a great place. The footwear displays span prehistoric times to present day. Well worth the visit.

It's exactly as what it's name suggests, it's a museum displaying Shoes!! But the incredible fact about this place is that it has a collection of more than 13000 varieties of shoes from all around the world, some dating hundreds of years back! Now that's amazing!! The information provided for every pair of shoes displayed is comprehensive and very well mentioned. Passes are available at the museum @$14per adult or you could also avail free passes from certain Toronto Public Library branches. The day I visited, the 3rd level was under renovation, but the displays on the other levels gave a great insite into the history of their places of origin and the significance of the most lowly attire, SHOES!!

It's a cozy little museum but it has a huge collection of different kinds of shoes and it's quite fascinating. It's entertaining to see that some shoes have stories behind it. The staff at the admission counter is very nice to talk to. It's worth every penny you spend for your 3-4 hour visit. Unlike other museums it does not drain you of your time, money and energy.

I was hesitant to go in at first as I thought it would be a stale hallway with shoes in dusty boxes or something, but dang was I proven wrong! Now I have no interest in footwear, I have one pair for everything, but this piqued my interest as to what shoes mean to people and what they can be. They have a nice historical selection, as well as my favorite section showing how native tribes all around the world make and design their footwear for the harsh weather. The methods and results are fascinating and clever and each group had their own unique styles. As a bonus, the staff were very relaxed and friendly. Only downside was the top exhibit wasn't in, they were currently installing a new event. Thats what happens when you visit in the off season though, so thats fair. If you got an afternoon or some time to drop by, do it, you'll definitely find something interesting here!

Well managed place with a good number of ancient shoes. I was expecting to see more modern day collections though. I believe they keep rotating the exhibits, the interesting ones I had seen today were the arctic weather boots and attires.

You don't have to be a shoe fanatic to find this museum fascinating. A cultural history of the world through the lens of footwear... men's shoes, women's shoes, functional shoes, fancy shoes, cultural shoes... deadly shoes. Visit by donation on Thursday evenings.

I love shoes and I found it just "Okay". Wouldn't make it it a must stop if you're only in Toronto a short time. Very close to the Royal Ontario Museum so doing both does make sense. The building is nice and there are some interesting things to see and read. 13000 shoes means there are shoes in there that would interested everyone.

It was a great experience. You could see shows from different places in the world. I love shoes and it was so good to spend time and see them and read more about it. They had a store there that could order hand made shoes too I think it should be very expensive:)))

Decent time killer. They lacked the third floor display when I went so that was a bummer. Lack of more modern footwear. As a museum, worth a visit. I skipped it the last time I was in the area 3 years ago so I'm somewhat glad I chose to see it this round. Just know it's a smaller museum.

Though not a large museum it hosts an interesting collection of artifacts that are surprisingly captivating. I went when they had a special exhibit on clothing and shoes from the industrial era exploring the dangerous side of vibrant colors and style choices. I learned a lot and it made me glad not to be alive in those times. Additionally their exhibit on Arctic clothing was fascinating and the ingenuity of the local populace outstanding. I would highly recommend for all as an afternoon 2-3 hour visit at reasonable price. It is also easy accessible by subway.

Was kind of skeptical about going to this place when I had the school trip but now I know it was a good option. The museum is very fascinating including many different cultural shoes and even celebrities. It was a very interesting and memorable experience and I would recommend anyone who's in the Toronto area to visit this Museum.

Very eclectic collection of footwear through the ages and even the genres amazed me. Such a delightful and interesting collection in a smaller museum. This made for a fun stop while in Toronto. Th staff was professional, knowledgeable, and very welcoming.

It's a museum. Completely dedicated to shoes. You might be thinking, "I'm sorry, what? Did you say...shoes? Like...feet clothes?" Why yes, like feet clothes. On the bottom floor is the history of shoes. Massively interesting. On the other floors are different exhibits which, if I'm correct, cycle out. I had the pleasure of seeing a bunch of golden shoes (including some great ancient sequence) and the shoes of the guy that the woman from "Sex and the City" is obsessed with. Something with an "M"? Anyway, still interesting. So if you're in the neighborhood, why not stop by and drop fourteen CAD to check out all those sweet feet clothes.

Bata is synonymous with footwear. This museum is a testimony to the company's dedication to their trade. Interesting exhibits that touch history of footwear from across the world. Very well organised and beautifully presented. Do visit and you will not be disappointed.

From the weird to the beautiful, the Bata shoe museum has enough history to intrigue shoe lovers and people who don't care about shoes too. I was kind of on the fence about going, but man am I glad I did. It's only around fourteen bucks to see the whole place and will take a couple hours depending on how into the shoes you are. There are lots of little activities for the kids scattered around as well.
