The Bata Shoe Museum is a great experience for Mom and Daughter's Day. You can combine the pass with the Textile and the Gardiner Museum if you wish, for a better deal. The visit was smooth and pleasant, the organizers gave enough time in between visits , so it is easy to keep social distance. Considering Canada as an official bilingual country, I was expecting the info and descriptions to be also in French not only in English. You can admire different piece of shoes' art in multiple colors, materials and learn a lot about history and countries' traditions. Due to the pandemic all the activities inside the Museum have been suspended, but visit was still enjoyable!

Toronto: Bata Shoe Museum Entrance Ticket Reviewed by

Such an AMAZING experience !! Without a tour guide it can be extremely overwhelming though. Everywhere you look and turn there are new doors and exhibits and places to go and things to see. It would’ve helped if there was a map of exhibits? When we spoke to the Lady at the information Booth she offered us no such thing. So we don’t know how much we actually missed. I do know I missed at least one exhibit, the place is so huge it seems easily done. It’s an amazing museum. However due to its massive size, there should be some sort of checklist for exhibits viewed or something of the sorts.

Great exhibits. One comment: more volunteers to greet and direct at the main entrance. It would also help to have volunteers at entrance to the exhibits. If you are not familiar with the layout of the museum and its exhibits, it would be nice to have some guidance. Thanks. J

So immense that it would be hard to see everything in one day, even if you’re there from open to close. We got a map and made notes on which sections we wanted to see the most, so that we didn’t miss those sections.

Skip the line worked great for us, museum Is beautiful, comprehensive, CLEAN (because a lot of those places get really dusty) and the cafeteria had really good quality and big selection of food!
