February 4, 2013 - December 31, 2013 Bata Shoe Museum
The seeds of the Museum were sown in the field when Mrs. Sonja Bata began to travel the world with her husband on business. At each distant destination she found herself marvelling at how different traditional footwear was around the world and she began to collect examples. Her early collecting became the foundation of the Museum that would grow to include over 13,000 artefacts.
Join us for our newest exhibition highlighting the history of shoemaking traditions, many of which are slowly disappearing. The exhibition will feature field trips that have brought a wealth of in-depth information to the Museum. Visitors can learn from the voices of the makers, see the images of their processes and amaze in the diversity of traditional footwear reflecting a variety of world cultures.
