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.

Toledo Art Museum was founded in 1901 by a glassworks magnate and is a surprisingly nice museum for a small city that is not a tourist destination. It's free! (Parking is $5.) There are two buildings - the original museum (enlarged, it seems) and a glass pavilion dedicated to the display and demonstration of glass blowing, cut glass art, other... More

My Dad, Brother, sister-in-law and I spent almost a complete day at the museum. They not only have some of the most priceless pieces of art there, you do not have to stand behind a rope to enjoy them and can also take pictures. There is also a Glass Blowing exhibit most days and that was extremely interesting. If you... More

Really hard to believe that this gem is in downtown Toledo... What a legacy, what amazing art... I bring everyone from out of town to this remarkable museum. Make sure you also visit the incredible cafe!

My husband and I heard wonderful reviews by friends who had visited the Toledo Museum of Art, so we were anxious to stop even though we were limited to only 2.5 hours. The museum was simply a delight. We look forward to returning to the area where we will allow more time to peruse the museum.

The Glass Exhibition is must (after all, Toledo, OH is also known asThe Glass City). The Perristerium is a beaitiful and unique venue for classical music concerts; but... More

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. The Glass Pavillion... More

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.
