Art from all over the world and every time period is housed at this outstanding museum, considered one of the world's best. From paintings by Renoir to sculptures by Alexander Calder to a vast glass collection, you'll find wonderful treasures here. Founder and first president Edward Drummond Libbey wanted to build a place where art was accessible to everyone, hence the museum's free admission policy, which continues to this day. The Toledo Museum of Art is open:Tuesday & Wednesday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.Thursday & Friday: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.Sunday: noon – 5 p.m.Closed Mondays, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

I love going to this museum. Especially if you have little ones. They have in the basement a whole area that you can take your kids to on certain days. The kids can paint, do crafts, pretend play etc. There was so much for them to do. It was ran very well and very organized. The kids even loved going... More

The Toledo Museum of Art is everything a major metropolitan museum should be.The building itself is a work of art, constructed of white marble, complete with pillars reminiscent of Greek facades. Inside, you'll find art deco motifs, inlaid marble and wood floorboards that move and creak beneath your steps. There is a little bit of everything behind the original turnstile... More

One great thing is that the museum is free (minus the parking) and it is filled with AMAZING art. Not to mention that it has a Glass Pavilion across the street that is pretty... More

What's to say ! It is a wonderful museum will go back again and again. It also offers art classes and has a beautiful theater where the Toledo symphony plays along with other productions.

Living just an hour away I had no idea that Toledo Ohio had this national treasure. My wife heard about it and I was skeptical until we arrived. The staff, facility and collection are exceptional and a must see if you like art.

Okay, what's a top rated Museum doing in Toledo, OH??? Let me tell you - it really is and worth the trip many, many times. Toledo is still recognized as the Glass Capital of the world and there is a top notch glass exhibit as well as "Glass Pavilion" with Hot Shop, exhibits and great events. TMA also has one... More
