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.

We are so fortunate to have an excellent art museum in Northwest Ohio. The art collection is very varied and of utmost quality. Also, the peristyle within the museum hosts many great musical events. Many hands on events are available for kids and adults. It has it all! Great place to take visitors! Suzyqleach

We would get on a bus from Monroe early morning and return in the later afternoon. I became an art teacher partly because of that experience. The museum has amazing collections and a wonderful gift shop... More

Friday nights at the museum mean free jazz. Concerts right on the front steps of the museum! Family friendly, neighborhood folks and jazz lovers all gather to hear various local groups each week. You can purchase food at the museum cafeteria, or snacks & drinks just inside. Lovely setting amid the sculptures directly across the street from the beautiful Glass... More

Great museum kind of went downhill since I've lived there or suggest it to anybody but at the same difference they're a lot more better things to do in Toledo then go to that art museum. The Toledo Zoo is probably the ultimate thing that I would do for kids and family

Art museums are typically not free. Good art museums are almost never free. This one is both. (and still worth a visit if they charged admission) The Toledo Museum of Art houses a substantial collection organized into a large number of well thought out galleries. The galleries range from ancient to ultra modern. Currently the museum has a number or... More

This museum is a solid average. OK art, OK building, but it is a really good starter museum to introduce children to fine arts.
