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.

Liked it all! I haven't been to this museum since I was in grade school (I have moved out of state), so I took my family, to include 5 & 16 y/o. I loved the video game portion of the museum. The flash backs were great!

Hats off to the Libby family for raiding Europe and Asia in the early 20th century of their art! Very nice building with free admittance and non-flash photos are ok. Extensive collection that surprised me for such a small market. Lots of free parking across the street with validation.

This museum is of the standard of those in Europe.... and admission is free! Excellent collection, from old Master paintings to contemporary, and around the world from Asia to Africa. The building itself is spectacular. A walk through the outdoor sculpture garden is a delight and directly across the street is the Glass Pavilion, with a stunning exhibit and glass... More

I grew up in the Toledo area and have visited this beautiful museum hundreds of times. It is wonderful. I went as a child and now take my children and we always enjoy our visits. They do a great job bringing in special exhibits so there is always something new to see. The cafe is good and the gift store... More

Tricky to find - but there are road signs when you get close. Easy, close parking for a small fee. The greeters are helpful and informative. The cashier attendants as well. The docents plentiful and friendly. The museum - phenomenal! Easy to navigate. So much to enjoy. Contemporary Art galleries were a real treat. As well as the 1900's galleries.... More

To be honest we only went for the video game exhibit, but we decided to walk through the whole museum and it was really beautiful. I was most amazed by the building itself, it was very wonderful architecture.

Forget the location. The Toledo Museum of Art would be a great museum anywhere. Have doubts? So did I. But on coming here we found works by, among many others, Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Mondrian, Gauguin, Renoir, Rodin, Degas, Calder, Sargent, Modigliani, Degas, Cezanne, Bonard, Pissarro, Matisse, and Picasso. More interested in European Masters? OK. Rembrandt, Rubens, Hans Holbein the... More

Based on many visits, we continue to rate the Toledo Museum of Art as excellent. It is impossible to go into the museum without enjoying the beautiful art. However on this visit, we spent most of our time looking at "The Art of Video Games." This exhibit is from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. It runs through September... More
