Nov 24: Visit to the Bata Shoe Museum – Exploration Day

Discover the treasures of North America’s charming and surprising shoe museum.  Our Exploration Day series continues this fall with a visit to the Bata Show Museum.  The Museum is easily identifiable by it’s unique architecture (the building looks like a shoe box!). Inside you will be amazed to learn that this is the home to over 10,000 pairs of shoes!

 

The Bata Shoe Museum celebrates the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. Footwear on display ranges from Chinese bound foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamourous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history and a collection of 20th-century celebrity shoes are reflected in the semi-permanent exhibition, All About Shoes. Three other galleries feature changing exhibitions, so there’s always something new to see.

 

During our visit we will have a multi-sensory and tactile experience while learning fascinating stories behind shoes, a clog painting workshop, guided tour and opportunity to explore the galleries.
