This is the best art museum in Ohio. There are ancient artifacts, modern art, and the grand Masters. Don't miss the Glasshouse across the street- it's magnificent.

It's a world-class museum with a nice balance of art forms. It was begun by local Toledoans and made famous art work accessible to all. Something for everyone- there are even interactive exhibits for children. Beautiful!

Recently my granddaughter took an art class in the summer art program at the museum What a great experience. Each day the teacher took the class of 11-13 yr olds through the museum for inspiration. Explaining different items in the gallery's and teaching not only hands on art technique but also teaching about art and the artists that made them.

This place is fantastic for being in Toledo. The art and exhibits they have are top notch, and offer not only a nice history of Toledo , but also of history from around the world. Kind of the point for a museum I suppose! This is definitely worth a stop, and it only take an hour or two to see... More

Great art museum with a wonderful glass collection. The building itself with the Peristyle and the Gehry designed Ubiversity of Toledo addition are worth the trip. Great programing for kids, glass blowing demonstrations, good food, great gift shop, and special exhibits appeal to a wide range of interests make the Toledo Museum of Art a first stop for locals and...

We were surprised by the size of the museum once we entered it. It doesn't seem as large from the outside. An additional added surprise was the glass pavilion across the street. We were impressed... good luck trying to get to the museum while the road construction is going on.

We loved the sculptures outside and once inside we were greeted by fantastic staff members who treated us like family! The exhibits were beautiful and we loved all the play fun for the kids too. It was grand to experience at through the eyes of children with the scavenger hunt forms to find different forms of art. This is a... More

We spent a few hours in the Glass Pavilion and really enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration. The instructor, Leonard Marty, really gave an excellent "blow by blow" explanation of his craft.
