Bata Shoe Museum

Museum in Toronto

It's important in life to be well shod, a stance the Bata Shoe Museum takes seriously. Impressively designed by architect Raymond Moriyama to resemble a stylized shoe box, the museum displays 10,000 'pedi-artifacts' from around the globe. Peruse 19th-century French chestnut-crushing clogs, Canadian aboriginal polar boots or famous modern pairs worn by Elton John, Indira Gandhi and Pablo Picasso. Come along for something truly different!

The 3Pass (www.3pass.ca) gets you admission into the Bata Shoe Museum, Gardiner Museum and Textile Museum of Canada for $30 (tax included).
