Your kids already spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to tie their shoes. Take a couple of hours with them to stare at shoes together. If you need to convince your tweens, the words "Justin Bieber's shoes" should do the trick. Adults can be wistfully entertained by John Lennon's Chelsea style ankle boots, or Marilyn Monroe's sexy red stilettos. On weekends, small children are encouraged to try on shoes and participate in shoe-themed arts and crafts. Your princess lover will be enthralled by the fairy-tale inspired area in "All About Shoes." We know that clothing makes the man, but it may instead be the shoes that can take the glory.

- Family-Friendly Museums: "In the summer, the Bata Shoe museum has a great daycare and day camp program.

Save your ticket, as it has a Reciprocal Admissions program with three other Toronto museums."
