Chronicles of Riches: Treasures from the Bata Shoe Museum
In museums around the world, treasured objects are collected, cared for and preserved, but the artifact storage areas are never seen by the public.

This exhibition takes a new approach: by transforming the gallery into a representation of the Museum's storage vaults, Chronicles of Riches brings visitors 'behind the scenes' for a rare view of the multitude of exceptional artifacts held in the collection.

From Napoleon's black silk socks worn while he lingered in exile on St. Helena to shoes of bear fur and silk worn by an ancient Japanese samurai, each of the artifacts in Chronicles of Riches has been hand-selected for the history it reveals and the tale it tells.
