Visit the Bata Shoe museum, virtually

Like many Torontonians there are many attractions I haven't visited. The only reason I ever visited the CN Tower is because I climbed it first. Once place I'm ashamed to say I've never visited is the Bata Shoe Museum. Isn't that sad for someone who claims to have a shoe fetish. However, Bata has decided to bring the museum to me. They opened several virtual exhibits. They join other sites like VirtualMuseum.ca and Civilization.ca. The exhibits cover Native, Inuit and Indian footwear history. It wouldn't be a post of mine without a fashion spin and of course there is an exhibit about the high heel.
