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 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.

Over 30,000 pieces of Art! Wow pretty amazing museum. I love seeing Van Gogh, Remington, Monet, Renor and Rubens to name a few. I didnt want to blink my eyes in fear of missing a moment. Staff is wonderful and finding your way around to your favorite pieces is easy. Make sure you grab a map, brochure and ask for... More

Went to see the Art of Video Games Exhibit on a random Sat morning recently. I had forgotten how nice the art museum is. The exhibit itself was fun and it covered most every video game I'd grown up with.

An incredible treat! The glass works and the history are a wonderful teaching tool for children. I have visited museums throughout the world and was amazed at the variety of exhibits. The Toledo Museum is one of the finest! The size is a pleasant surprise. We look forward to our next visit.

I love this museum!! It is easy to drive to and the museum has an extensive collection of art through the ages. The Libby family has created a wonderful collection for all to see!! You can't do the whole museum in one day so plan your visit well.

I was very impressed with the Toledo Museum of Art. I am from Cleveland and of course have visited the amazing Cleveland Museum of art many many times. It felt like we were visiting a mini version of the Cleveland Museum. I was in town visiting my daughter and her husband for my daughters birthday. The exhibit we spent the... More

This museum is right up there with some of the best in much larger cities. The entire museum is incredible. We were very pleasantly surprised at the magnitude of the place. Excellent works of art and artists are displayed beautifully. The Libbey family spared no expense in the planning and curating for this museum. It is worth it to go... More

I attended "It's Friday" at the Toledo Museum of Art and had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful art in the West Wing only. The museum is so large until it will take several days to see all the different sections, rooms, collections, and exhibits. We also had the opportunity to see the exhibit "People Get Ready: 50 Years of... More

My husband and I were passing through Toledo and decided to stop at the art museum, thinking we would spend an hour or so there. We were quite surprised and ended up spending about four hours in the museum including a lovely lunch of very fresh and interesting food in the little café. The collection was much more extensive than... More

If you are in Toledo; do not miss this wonderful museum! I remember going as a child seeing the huge punch bowl, a mummy, & the Labino glass wall exhibit (now part of the Glass House across the street). The Glass House is worth the time too! Sometimes they have glass blowers in a room that is surrounded by glass... More
