About the Bata Shoe Museum
The BSM is turning 20! Celebrating a milestone anniversary, the BSM continues to prove that ‘for every
shoe there is a story’. With an International collection of over 13,000 shoes and related artefacts, the Bata
Shoe Museum celebrates 4,500 years of footwear history in four distinctive rotating galleries. In addition
to our popular semi-permanent exhibition, ‘All About Shoes’, the Museum has three galleries for changing
exhibitions, ensuring that each visit to the museum offers a new experience. Through the creation of its
innovative exhibitions, the Museum strives to enlighten and entertain visitors of all ages. Exciting adult
and children’s programming activities and a unique gift shop complete the experience. A cultural gem in
the heart of the city, the Bata Shoe Museum is definitely for the curious! Further information is available
