Highly recommended - especially while the Manolo Blahnik exhibition is on - but interesting also without this

5000 years of footwear; 13,000 pairs. Including the sobering shoes that the Bata company created for the trapped miners in Chile. Definitely worthwhile.

Surprising how much you can learn about history in general by focusing on one item, in this case shoes. When I visited there was a Manolo Blahnik exhibit that was great fun to peruse. The other exhibits were: All About Shoes: Footwear Through the Ages...More

Really enjoyed my morning here. Museum is excellently laid out. Really good history on shoes across different countries, cultures & religions. Artic exhibition of shoes also fascinating. Also who knew there were so many variations of cinderella's slipper! Really enjoyed my visit.

If you are interested in shoes and their development, this is the museum for you....Not necessarily my favorite subject but I must say the Blahnik exhibition is quite spectacular.

A museum for shoes! It was definitely interesting to see the history and some of the ridiculous shoe style in ancient and modern times :). Blahnik's shoe collection was also very good to look at. Definitely worth a visit.

you can see the history of shoes split by ages, religious area, cultural directions; and very interesting special show of Manolo Blahnik design and shoes; it's interesting of course for women, but also for men

It’s a good place to go, but not for so long. It has an interesting collection of shoes from diferentes times, decades, centuries. However, I considered the place ok, not spectacular.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

Actually, The BAATA Shoe Museum is a privately developed and run entity and is not connected to any of the other museums and galleries in Toronto. However, as the previous commenters have said, the entry is VERY reasonable... More
