Please note:Due to the overwhelming number of requests and inquiries we receive, particularly relating to curatorial inquiries, identifying or providing information on shoes from personal collections, or requests for donations, we are not able to respond to everyone. If we are able to assist you with your inquiry someone will respond to you as soon as possible. Please note that due to the small size of our staff we are not able to assist with research or information requests relating to artifacts, not in our collection.
Please note: In adherence to standard museum practices, the Bata Shoe Museum does not provide financial appraisals or evaluations or assist with the sale of personal property.
Thank you for your interest in the Bata Shoe Museum.
