I have fantasies about visiting this place with Alice and a pack of friends. Toronto, anyone?
The museum has a collection of over 10,000 shoes. Hundreds are on exhibit in four galleries. Current exhibits are:
(Click on “Select a Story” on that Past Exhibit page to see the whole list.)
You’ll see truly gorgeous photographs throughout the site. They’re fussy about reproduction so I’ll hold back on sharing their wonderful photographs, even though it’s very, very hard to do so.
There’s also music.
Even podcasts! Lovely photos on the podcast page, too.
Maybe a trip to the Bata Shoe Museum will happen one day. Meanwhile, there’s the Web site.
P.S. If you know any teachers, there are lots of resources for educators on the site.
