Bata Shoe Museum
Saturday June 6 and Sunday June 7, 2020

Black Creek Pioneer Village members can enjoy both the permanent and temporary exhibitions during their visit, including the special exhibition The Great Divide: Eighteenth Century Footwear and the Age of Enlightenment (opening May 8, 2020).

This exhibition explores the obsession of 18th century European scientists, philosophers, and traders to categorize and classify the world around them — in a quest for knowledge, but also to justify empire building and its associated power structures. During this time in history, dress and fashion were used to reinforce what was not deemed as “natural”. Visitors will be taken on a 300-year journey into the past, and asked how footwear fashion was used to reinforce categories such as gender, race and ethnicity in the 18th century, and how much (or how little) has changed since the days of the Enlightenment.

Present your valid Black Creek Pioneer Village membership card(s) and ID at the Admissions Desk on June 6 and 7, 2020, to recieve free general admission. Please note: This offer is only valid for Black Creek Pioneer Village cardholders. Guest privileges do not apply.

The Bata Shoe Museum is open Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, the Bata Shoe Museum online or call (416) 979-7799.
