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.

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!

It's hard to believe but everything in this amazing museum is free for all to enjoy! It is airy, bright and clean and it's obvious that great thought is given to how collections are displayed. The gift shop is definitely worth a visit as is the glass pavilion across the street where glass blowing can be observed. Check for concerts... More

Fantastic! Nice kids Art Area for the little ones and things to do for kids throughout the galleries also. The glass pavilion across the street was amazing. Wonderful glass blowing demo. Kids ages 12 and 7 both loved it here. FREE also

My 86 year old mom and I went on a cold gloomy day. We had a nice cozy lunch and then walked around several sections of the museum. I enjoyed the plaza area where music was playing. I imagined it was during the time of Romeo and Juliet. It was beautiful.

Hard to believe a museum of this quality could exist in a mid-size Midwestern city. Excellent core collection of old masters. Separate glass museum with glassblowing demonstrations. Engaging special exhibits. Remarkable educational offerings, especially for kids.
