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.

My husband and I stop in each year for a visit at the Toledo Museum of Art. We love this museum. This time, the exhibit was of the Libbey [Doucet] Dolls, which was very cool. I do wish that all of the dolls had been individually exhibited rather than having the majority of them grouped en masse. But we still... More

One of my favorite places to get lost in. This visit was to see the Libbey Dolls: Fashioning the Story in Gallery 18. We spent quite some time looking at all of the articles on the wall, the 78 dolls and their clothing. We are so lucky to have the Libbey family in Toledo to give us such a wonderful... More

I was blown away - this lovely little Shinkelsque neoclasscial museum was such a great surprise! The collection is world class - Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, Albers, Calder - etc. The museum is small, but well curated and very very elegant. The nearby glass pavillion was designed by 2010's Pritzker Prize winners and is equally elegant and rich. Go out of... More

I had never been to Toledo before, so to say that I was impressed with the amount of culture Toledo has to offer is an understatement. We visited the Toledo Museum of Art, and I would go back. The selection of art was impressive, and the amount of things for children to participate in was great. My 5 year old... More

This museum's collection may be smaller in comparison to museums in larger cities, but it truly does shine. It has some unique pieces (especially in glass as others have noted) and often has fabulous exhibitions: a recent favorite was on the Art of Video Games. TMA stands out to me especially though because they do so much to help visitors... More

Fridays are the best for a date night. Free Friday admission to most, if not all, special exhibits. If you have kids there are lots of fun activities for them to do that go along with the special exhibits.

They always have creative special events. The Glass Pavilion is a walk through history. So beautiful. Toledo Museum of Art is a mini Metropolitan Museum of Art.
