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.

It's hard to add much to say about a Museum that attracts visitor's from every part of the World. I hope you are one of those. As an added bonus, the TMA remains the only major Museum that remains totally free of charge, except for special Exhibition's. There is also an excellent Café on site with very reasonable prices.

Yes, there's an art museum in Toledo and it's a good one. It's hosted exhibits ranging from El Greco to Star Wars and everything in between. But the Glass Pavilion is your must-see.

This is a world class museum! There is no need to go to NYC,Paris or London, It's all right here. And across the street is the glass museum. You can watch glass blowers at work and see many treasures from the Libby collection.

we spent three hours and never got to the modern art or the glass house. Free admission, but $5 for parking.

There is a wide assortment of art and many events always going on at the museum. It's nice to have a free museum with just $5 to park.

I spent a few hours at the Toledo Museum of Art on a recent trip to Ohio. The staff was excellent and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. The galleries were filled with a variety of displays and I especially enjoyed the paintings by Monet. There was a special exhibit on the Civil War when I... More

I saw a few unique exhibits but not much I was thrilled about. I didn't see much modern art (which I'm thinking was in a different building maybe?) I was kind of bored but that is just my opinion. I'm more into modern art and photography.

While it would not be fair to compare this museum to MOMA or the MFA etc. for a decent sized city this museum was extremely disappointing. There seemed to be very little flow (you leave the ancient Greek and Roman gallery and walk into a modern art room), some pieces lumped in broadly and not by artist or school or... More
