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.

This museum is definitely underrated and a hometown favorite! Fun to stop in and see some classics. I love attending the special exhibits which are usually the only ones you have to pay a fee for! There are lots of unique hand blown glass gifts in the gift shop from local artists. There are many classes offered to sign up... More

This is a true secret - the collection is enormous for such a medium sized city It is well laid out; educational; and very broadly representative. This is a classy place - a true Toledo gem. And the glass paviliion is likely unmatched in the world.

Across the street is a gallery for glass works you can also see a glass blower at work. There are classes available for a price. In the basement you... More

We stopped by and in addition to the great art was a political exhibit about TV ads and how we act and respond. Across the street is the glass exhibit and its all free except for $5 parking. Great 4 hr min stay

Wonderful medium size museum. Beautiful classical exterior with outdoor sculptures. Nice examples of Egyptian, Greek and Roman art up through modern day with everything in between. Many famous artists represented in very nice galleries that are well lit and presented. A middle ages Cloister in the center of the museum is surrounded by religious art. A wonderful feeling of "majesty"... More

Three separate buildings. Original looks like a replica of the Parthenon with its classical look from Monroe Avenue. Note the ethereal green color of the steps nearest the entrance which comes from the copper trim or gutters around the building's roof line leaching off. Sculptures abound around the garden setting on the Monroe Avenue front. On the eastern end of... More

I visited a few months back during the sneaker expo and I was just amazed by all the art and glass sculptures. Ill be honest I was born and raised in a near by town and never took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the museum. I was so glad that I did such a great experience to enjoy with... More

I was really impressed by the art collection housed at the Toledo Museum of Art. The Indian pottery and clothing were outstanding. I wish we would have had more time to spend there. We were unable to make it to the glass portion, but we will be back.
