Yes, our much respected PM’s favourite slipper brand actually has a museum of its own! The museum started as a result of Sonja Bata’s ever growing collection of traditional footwear as she travelled the world with her husband, Thomas J. Bata of the Bata Shoe Company. As her collection grew, the Bata family decided to put the collection on display alongside all the research and experiments for footwear.
