Only if you are into the history of shoes and have some free time to kill. Takes about 30 minute for the whole museum.

We took our 9 year old granddaughter here as part of a magical mystery afternoon. We started with lunch at Fune- reviewed separately. This was a first for all three of us and we were quite pleased with the visit. The museum is very informative,...More
The Bata Shoe Museum is a fascinating place to walk through if you're looking for something different. The displays are accompanied by detailed explanations regarding various historical and cultural aspects of shoes. We thoroughly enjoyed investigating this unusual landmark in Toronto.

While the museum is not huge, it was definitely worth a walk through. You'll be surprised how many shoes you owned that are listed in Shoe History : 0 Definitely worth a visit.
Nice little museum. Who would think there could be a museum just for shoes. Even as a guy l was impressed. The history is interesting, not that you are going to spend all day there, but the Royal Ontario Museum is just a short walk...More
The museum was a really interesting concept and I loved parts of it. The Arctic exhibition was really interesting and the different styles of shoes throughout the eras. Overall, its a little lack lustre and quite small. Not sure it was worth the entrance fee?
This is not just fancy shoes. It's the history of so much from what dyes were used back in the 1500's to the shoes used in Vietnam. Fabulous place but I think a tour is a must.
