Walk a mile in someone else's shoes with a ticket to Bata Shoe Museum, dedicated solely to shoes! Explore impressive exhibitions that will inspire and thrill visitors and shoe-lovers of all ages in architect Raymond Moriyama’s iconic, award-winning building.

The museum uses shoes to show the shape-shifting social fabrics of cultures around the world – past and present. See French chestnut-crushing boots alongside delicately embroidered Chinese silk shoes, moose-skin moccasins, and footwear made from human hair!

Laced with over 13,000 exhibits spanning 4,500 years, with temporary exhibitions to boot, you're sure to wear out some leather exploring it all! Gawk at a well-preserved velvet-covered platform chopine from 16th-century Renaissance Italy, sandals from ancient Greece and Egypt, the elegant creations of today's haute couture catwalk designers, and lots more.

All About Shoes: Footwear Through the Ages will take you on a voyage through 4500 years of footwear history, focusing on the important role that footwear plays in our lives and imaginations.

Excellent museum. Such an interesting look at history and culture through footwear. Only had an hour, which wasn't nearly enough time, so we'll have to back!
