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.

Good time for family with kids, especially the special exhibits! The museum is huge. Kids loved the video game display and the Egyptian artifacts.

The Glass Pavilion alone is worth the trip for their huge collection of glass from ancient times to the present masters of art glass. The beautiful main museum building houses a vast collection of art from classics to modern masters. The cost for all of this beauty--just $5 for parking. Don't miss it!

The Toledo Museum of Art is an awesome place to visit for people of any ages. They change their exhibits often to keep things fresh for visitors. They also offer free admission which is great!

I enjoyed it and it was free. The only one that will be shown in the country this year. If you remember PAC man, then go. Examples of games up to modern times and how it has changed.

Hi, I'm afraid this review was attached to the wrong property. Our Museum cafe does not serve steaks and we do not have waitresses serving tables. We are an order at the counter and have a server bring your food to you cafe. Sorry your experience at where ever you ate was not great. More

Husband and I spent the morning at the Toledo Museum of Art with my two kids, aged 20 and 24 years, and our 7-year-old nephew. We had a great time checking out this surprisingly large collection.

Surprisingly large collection, well laid out, with some very nice classic pieces from Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Whistler, and Sargeant. Lovely collection of antiquities from Egypt and Ancient Rome. Stunning theatre onsite. Museum is always free, parking is very affordable.

Created by the insight of the generosity of the Libbey Glass family this is little gem offers priceless works of art to be viewed without the large crowds and noisy galleries you experience in most big cities. The descriptions of each piece are well detailed without being overly artistically stylized and art history stuffy.

There are few places in the michigan, ohio area to go for quality entertainment. The toledo museum was great. The Greek theater, video game exhibit, Egyptian artifacts were really good. Make sure to go to the glass blowing demonstration. And it's all FREE!!
