What a wonderful collection!
Aug 2021
There is such a wide range of art that I don't think it is possible to absorb it all in one visit. We viewed only the older European art and were saturated after two hours. Wonderful paintings that one would not expect in this city. We will need to visit again to see the other collections. Free admission - what a bargain! Little cafe is indeed small, but service is excellent.

Ohio's Other Wonderful Art Museum.
Sep 2021
Great works of art can be found all across America, in cities big and small. The Midwest is fortunate to have many important art museums that include The Art Institute of Chicago, The Detroit Institute of Arts, The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Toledo Museum of Art.

The first thing to know about the Toledo Museum of Art is that entry is free. The museum has an impressive collection, considering its size, especially its European works. Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, Goya, Frans Hals, Veronese, Cézanne, Matisse, Renoir and Gauguin are a few of the notable artists in its European Collection. There are also wonderful works by American artists, such as Edward Hopper, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Frank Stella and Richard Diebenkorn.

If you enjoy antiquities, the museum has that as well, along with an impressive glass collection. Be sure to go outside to see the museums beautiful sculpture garden as well. Give yourself a few hours to see all that's here.

Parking at the museum is $8.00. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. There's a small cafe and nice gift shop.

Outstanding
Sep 2021
An impressive collection of European art, with smaller collections of Egyptian, Roman, Asian and Modern Art.. Large collection of Netsuke. Small jewelry collection. Did not expect a city the size of Toledo to have a collection this amazing. Admission was free when we visited. Parking in the museum lot at this time is $ 8.00 but there is free parking on the street if you look and don't mind walking a couple blocks.

Free admission! Art is among the best in USA, and getting more diverse. Create your own art room for children

Best collection of older European art (with a few of Van Gogh, El Greco..) for many, many miles.
Good collection of Egyptian, Roman, Asian, and African

Separate Glass Pavilion (after all Toledo is the Glass City...because of Libbey Glass)
with glass blowing demonstrations as well as glass art displays.
Separate reviews of the Glass Pavilion here at the Trip Advisor

One of my favorites...the cloister with a nonworking fountain surrounded by 4 rows of columns of different styles. Medieval art on the walls and in cases.

A good family outing. Tours are available for adults, children, and families.
Go to the Web site for links to events. Many are free.

Cafe is reasonably priced and food is very good.

Toledo Museum of Art in the big leagues of art museums
Aug 2021 • Couples
We were pleasantly surprised at the collections contained in the Toledo Museum of Art. Having been many times to the Art Institute in Chicago, as well as the Louvre in Paris and other art museums in cities like Milwaukee, I would not have expected much in a small city like Toledo. But we were so impressed and enjoyed it so much. The Egyptian collection was large, as well as the Baroque and religious art. The most amazing piece was 3 walls of a monastery arcade from the year 1100s. We were there for almost 4 hours and didn’t see everything and did not make it to the separate building of glass works. We ate lunch in the cafe in a pleasant room of windows. Volunteers and security staff shared tidbits of information with us. We were told by one of the volunteers that it’s considered the third best art museum in the country (behind the Met in NY and another one the west coast…) The building is pretty, as well.

GOOD DISPLAYS

This is one of the better art museums outside New York City. There are actually some interesting displays, unlike other art museums. Not being an art connoisseur, I leave it up to the visitor to decide what they think, but I enjoyed it. Not bad for a free museum, but parking is extra on weekdays.

We had a couple hours and thought we would stop here on our way through town. Oh how I wish we had more time! There was so much to see and lots to learn. An impressive collection for sure and such friendly staff. We also had lunch in their cafe and it was delicious. Would love to come back and spend a day!

Surrounded by beauty - inside and outdoors

Loved this museum. Beautiful, clean, welcoming. Each person we came into contact with was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful art, plenty of spaces created to sit, relax and take in the beauty around you, both indoors and outside.

A Gem of a Museum
Apr 2021
This is such a wonderful museum! It is laid out in a way that feels warm and welcoming. The artworks are amazing, and beautifully displayed. The collection of glass throughout the ages is second only to the collection at Corning. The old masters section includes many of the acknowledged Greats, but also works by painters who have been overlooked. In a time when museums are questioning their mission of preserving the past, Toledo is thoughtfully adding new acquisitions which broaden our knowledge of the past. A commitment to the art of the past does not prevent an involvement with the issues of the present, and Toledo knows this. The museum is deeply involved in community outreach to both school groups and adults.

Parking was easily found. There are a few lots. You will pay for parking when you register at the front desk. $8 is nothing for a free visit. Some exhibitions do have a fee, but overall everything else is free for the eyes to explore. We spent almost 4 hours, but one could spend many more or less depending on one's appreciation.
