Art from all over the world and every time period is housed at this outstanding museum, considered one of the world's best. 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. The Toledo Museum of Art is open:Tuesday & Wednesday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.Thursday & Friday: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.Sunday: noon – 5 p.m.Closed Mondays, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

We loved this museum, it's well organized and lots of different art to see. For kids, there are little hands-on stations with materials like blocks. The family center was fun too. My kids really enjoyed their visit. We are a picnic lunch outside and looked at the outside art. If you are into ancient Egypt or read the Kane chronicles,... More

If you want a fine outing, please come to the Toledo Museum of Art and see the wonderful treasurers there. You will also enjoy the dining room with its beautiful setting and unique, but limited food offerings.

One of the unusual draws is the It's Friday programs, particularly during the summer, when live bands perform on the outdoor steps and plaza in front of the Peristyle.

There are some world class pieces of art in the museum. The highlight for our group though was the beautiful Glass Pavilion building located across the street with the same parking lot. They're having a special exhibit of private collecting pieces that have never been shown publicly.

A great Museum. Many great pieces. The Egyption area I especially liked. The building itself is beautiful. Take some pictures outside. Many wedding parties stop during the summer for photos.

This is my type on art museum lots of cold marble and beautiful art. Hard to believe that there is no entry fee and parking is only 5.00. I felt so guilty after visiting this place I threw a $20 in the donation box in the lobby.

We had heard and read good things about the museum and they were right. There's an impressive collection of world famous artists works. The works include not just the old masters but more modern art and art from around the world. The lay out of the museum makes it easy to navigate. We would definitely go back again when in... More

Visited the art museum for the first time this weekend, and really enjoyed it. Many galleries with beautiful paintings to see. Something for everyone. Also enjoyed the new Political Ad Exhibit -highly recommend. Staff were friendly and helpful, and entrance is free, just have to pay for parking. Wonderful cultural experience!
