      -Ticket Sales Ends at 9:00pm on Feb 24 - Visit 2 Museums in 1 Day. Private Tours & Workshops included.  Museum 1 - Bata Shoe Museum "Discover the treasures of North America’s inspiring, charming and surprising shoe museum. The Bata Shoe Museum (BSM) regularly displays over a thousand shoes and related artifacts, chosen from a collection of over 13,000 objects, in architect Raymond Moriyama’s iconic, award-winning building. The BSM celebrates the style, development and function of footwear across four impressive galleries, with displays ranging from Chinese bound-foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamorous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history are reflected in our permanent exhibition, All About Shoes while our three other galleries feature changing exhibitions – so there’s always something new to see. Join us for a gallery tour and a hands-on session where you will have the opportunity to examine objects up close while experienced guides explain the fascinating stories behind the shoes! " Museum 2 - Gardiner Museum "Come to the Gardiner Museum and learn about the distinct cultures that flourished from western Mexico to southern Peru.  This ceramics collection reveals the history, beliefs, and gastronomy of the Ancient Americas. Civilizations from the Ancient Americas made outstanding contributions that range from incredibly accurate calendars to astonishing monuments of architecture.  They also left a number of ceramic pieces which, thousands of years later, still speak to their skill and artistry. You will go on a gallery tour guided by one of the Museum's Curator/Archeologist, followed by a hands-on clay class."
