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 have had the pleasure of visiting the art museum a few times & each time I see different areas that are wonderful to behold. Variety of art and styles, with their history - which we love, the glass blowing exhibit, changing temporary exhibits, and the beauty of the architecture all to make each trip an experience. No entrance fee,... More

We only had a short time at the museum but it was well worth the stop. The glass museum (across the street from the main museum) was very nice with several interesting pieces. They also have glass-blowing demonstrations and we were lucky enough to get to see one. It was amazing as they make beautiful pieces of art right in... More

I have been to this art museum at least three times. I am blown away every time! I have been to many art museums in the surrounding area of Cleveland, OH and this is definitely one of the top art museums. The best though still goes to the Cleveland Museum of Art. However, this one is much better than the... More

Overall a nice, but unexceptional museum. However, if you are a fan of glass, then this is a very worthwhile visit. Toledo is not called the Glass City for nothing. Their museum provides a range of styles and some good historical perspectives.

Friendly, laid back staff, great and well displayed collections. Very much a traditional collection tending to old masters but with a decent selection of early modernists. My favorite art museum and one often overlooked.

What a gem. I first visited after reading an article asking 10 museum curators for their wish list piece for their museum. The only name that popped up more than once was the Toledo Museum of Art. Worth the trip from anywhere and always free admission. The Glass Museum across the street is very special as well. Glass blowing demos... More

I've been to museums in NYC, Madrid, Paris... and the Toledo Museum of Art stands up to the best. In a mid-size Midwest town, you'll find a comprehensive collection in the original museum and an outstanding glass museum just across the street. For those lucky enough to live nearby, the visiting artists, the frequent exhibits and the engaging art classes... More

Went and were lucky enough to be able to see a live demonstration of a glass blower making a beautiful bowl. The museum is completely free and has amazing exhibits as well as architecture. A must see while visiting Toledo, OH!
