There’s always something at the BSM for kids and families

Exploring the Galleries

Do you like wandering around and discovering fascinating stories? Then you’ll love  All About Shoes, where you’ll see some of the most beautiful, most extraordinary, and most surprising footwear.  From an ancient Egyptian sandal to a training boot for space exploration, it’s all here. For younger children, All About Shoes also has a discovery area with shoe-themed books and more!

Weekends at the BSM

Spend an afternoon at Toronto’s coolest shoebox, where parents and kids can explore the galleries and have both a fun and educational experience.

Visit us on the weekend with your little ones where kids can do shoe-themed arts and crafts, try on funky footwear and play a game of ISpy in the galleries.  All activities are drop-in until 4pm (unless pre-empted by other programming).

MAP Family Saturdays

Join a BSM educator as they visit branches of the Toronto Public Library and give participants the opportunity to touch and examine museum objects up close while hearing the fascination stories behind the shoes.  Children also get to make a shoe-themed craft to take home! Free and perfect for children ages 3-12
