About the surrounding area

The Bata Shoe Museum is located at the intersection of Bloor Street and George Street in Downtown Toronto’s Bloor Street Culture Corridor.   The Bloor Street Culture corridor was an initiative that began in 2014 to collectivize the numerous cultural institutions in the area. In 2016, the City of Toronto designated the section of Bloor Street West, between Bathurst and Bay Street, to be an official cultural corridor, and in recent years the corridor has welcomed over 3 million visitors annually.   In addition to the Bata Shoe Museum, the district is home to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), as well as the Gardiner Museum, a museum dedicated to showcasing ceramic artworks.    A number of cultural organizations also call the area home: the Japan Foundation, the Italian Istituto Italiano di Cultura, the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, the Museum of Estonians Abroad, the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, and the Alliance Française de Toronto.   The district also features a range of performing arts venues and cinemas, including the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, the Royal Conservatory of Music / Koerner Hall, and the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema.  

About the Bata Shoe Museum

Founded in 1995, the Bata Shoe Museum is a footwear museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of historical and contemporary footwear. It is the only museum devoted entirely to footwear in North America. The museum’s permanent collection contains over 13,500 pieces spanning over 4,500 years of human history and includes footwear from all over the world with everything from mukluks and specialty chestnut-crushing boots to meticulously embroidered silk slippers and stiletto high-heels. 

 

The museum’s collection contains an impressive assembly of Indigenous North American and circumpolar footwear, as well as a collection of some of the world’s earliest known forms of footwear from Ancient Egypt and Greece. The museum even has a permanent collection of celebrity footwear, including Elvis Presley’s iconic blue suede shoes, John Lennon’s Chelsea boots, and even a pair of Queen Victoria’s ballroom slippers.

 

In addition to its permanent collection, the museum regularly hosts seasonal exhibits and a wide range of activities and events, including book clubs, family days, workshops, lectures, and more.
