Toledo museaum of Art is rated in the top 10 in the country and has some really unique and beautiful art. I have been going here since a child and alway take visitors to our city here. The student art section is amazing and the old masters my favorite.

Went to see the Manet show and then explored the TMA. The glass pavilion is a treasure. Great exhibits and the best hot glass demo that I have seen and we have been to Marino.

Decided to have a day out and stop by the museum due to so many stating it was worth the visit. I will say the art was amazing and I loved the Dutch artist exhibit as well as the Egyptian/Roman/Greek exhibits. Everything was very nicely displayed and the lighting was not offensive while admiring the paintings.
My only concern is the friendliness of the "security" and staff they have on hand. It was our first time there and we didn't know all the rules, so to speak. I read in the pamphlet that no flash photography was allowed in certain areas of the museum, unless it was a special exhibit. I wasn't quite sure what a special exhibit might be, so I looked for signs saying no photography. I took one photo with my phone, and was immediately yelled (yes, yelled at, not nicely spoken to) "There's no photography!!" Startled, I turned around and found myself apologizing to a very unhappy gruff woman in a blue suit. I again apologized and stated I was not aware of the certain exhibit rule and put my phone away. Her response was "Well there isn't any photography!!" We were then watched like thief's for the rest of that particular exhibit. A simple tap on the shoulder and explanation that I was not allowed to take pictures would have seemed much more becoming. Oh well.
Overall, museum was great day trip. Just watch your p's and q's around the staff. They take their jobs very seriously, and consider everyone a threat.

Came to the museum for a short afternoon visit.
I would say that i was pretty surprised that Toledo has a more-than-decent art museum. (my misconception came from Toledo being pretty small)
However, there are many interesting pieces in there, and i went for the 'Made In Hollywood' exhibition, and that was pretty good as well.
There are many activities, and i did manage to catch a demo of a 'swing dance' performance in the in-house theater auditorium, and that was fun.
I can expect to come to the museum every other month if i'm a resident of Toledo, and the free entry certainly doesn't hurt.
It is not a gigantic museum, and i would say a full day would probably cover it.
