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.

Having travelled from the UK to visit a friend, it has to be said that really there is not that much to do in Toledo, but hell did they do a good job with a wide variety of art and styles for such a small town. Clean, fresh and bright with art covering many different ages and a good guest... More

The entire family had a great time at this beautiful little museum. Our kids are 10, 6 & 3 and they all had a blast. We mostly came to enjoy The Art of Videogames exhibit (which was great but is sadly over) but found ourselves wandering the other galleries and finding interesting exhibits everywhere. We especially appreciated the sculpture room... More

We visited on a Thursday evening when the Museum opens until 9pm to see the video game exhibition. It was ending this month and as I enjoy IT and gaming it was something I wanted to visit while on holiday here in the US from the UK. What a beautiful museum, and amazing free attraction. Parking at $5 is totally... More

Toledo Art Museum was founded in 1901 by a glassworks magnate and is a surprisingly nice museum for a small city that is not a tourist destination. It's free! (Parking is $5.) There are two buildings - the original museum (enlarged, it seems) and a glass pavilion dedicated to the display and demonstration of glass blowing, cut glass art, other... More

My Dad, Brother, sister-in-law and I spent almost a complete day at the museum. They not only have some of the most priceless pieces of art there, you do not have to stand behind a rope to enjoy them and can also take pictures. There is also a Glass Blowing exhibit most days and that was extremely interesting. If you... More

Really hard to believe that this gem is in downtown Toledo... What a legacy, what amazing art... I bring everyone from out of town to this remarkable museum. Make sure you also visit the incredible cafe!

My husband and I heard wonderful reviews by friends who had visited the Toledo Museum of Art, so we were anxious to stop even though we were limited to only 2.5 hours. The museum was simply a delight. We look forward to returning to the area where we will allow more time to peruse the museum.

The Glass Exhibition is must (after all, Toledo, OH is also known asThe Glass City). The Perristerium is a beaitiful and unique venue for classical music concerts; but... More

I grew up in Toledo, OH and one of the places I'm most proud of is the Toledo Museum of Art. It has grown into a first class and well respected display for some of the world's most impressive pieces of art. The Glass Pavillion is a spectacle not to be missed if traveling through Toledo, OH.
