If you are a regular visitor to Tripandom you have probably noticed we like a good museum, we have featured plenty of car, plane, science and history museums but never one like this one we found in Toronto Canada. The Bata Shoe Museum is as the name suggests a museum dedicated to those things you wear on your feet, shoes. This huge 4 storey museum has over 10,000 shoes which represent over 4500 years of footwear history. There is everything from ancient sandals to the glamorous high heels of today. One of the most popular exhibits is the Walk of Fame where famous people have left their footprints or in many cases their shoes for everyone’s enjoyment. There are some huge names including John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Picasso and a great pair of Elton John’s platform boots from the 70’s. The museum features continual changing and traveling exhibits and has a shoe for everyone- you might even be able to buy a pair of shoes in the gift shop.
