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.

I love this museum! So much to see. They also have a kids area on the lower level with painting and kids activity. Very nice place to visit. didn't get to see the whole thing, but what I did see was nice. I would go back. OH, and the museum employees were very helpful as well.

I love coming to the art museum! It is definitely one of Toledo's treasures. Free admission and only a $5 donation for parking provides for hours of exploring at the museum. One of my favorite places in the city.

I know they bring in new exhibits all the time, but we do have some of the best paintings. We are also known for being the glass capital of the world so we have a glass exhibit that is just beautiful.

Every time I visit the Toledo Museum of Art I'm in awe. The brilliance of the structure, the significance of the art work, and the grace and style of the atmosphere is overwhelming every time. I've brought my daughter with me year after year to teach her the importance of preservation and to have a respect for art and the... More

An excellent Museum, strong collection, and the glass area is incredible, especially demonstrations. There are meeting rooms that can host functions.The Peristyle is a great venue for concerts

As an art historian, I've seen many museums. This ranks in the upper tier. A very rich collection beautifully displayed. You have to admire the insight of our predecessors who had the great vision to create this great public monument that is FREE. We attended on a Thursday when the Museum is open until 9. In a restored cloister, a... More

Was surprised to find such a great museum in Toledo. And it's free! Went on Thursday night since it's open until 9. They had a concert in their cloisters so ended up staying until closing. Everything on one floor with a variety of well known artists. Many docents there to tell you stories about exhibits--apparently the Rubens painting was rescued... More

Growing up in Toledo, I have fond memories of field trips and visits to the art museum. I recently returned with my two young sons (4 and 2) and was anxious to visit after many, many years. We came specifically for the new Play Time exhibit, which allows people to interact, climb, and play on the exhibit. We were glad... More

I've lived in several cities and I'd put Toledo's art museum as third in my list behind New York's and Chicago's best. The variety and quality of the collections are unbelievable. Thanks to forethinking city leaders years ago and smart investments as well as faithful donors, the art purchases and displays are the best. The glass pavilion across the street... More
