  • We did the $40 glass workshop and had SO much fun. I mean even my 15 year old son was happy lol. The guys that ran the workshop were funny, helpful, informative, and made us feel safe & important. We made our own personalized glass figures that we get to pick up later this week. The museum is a beautiful hidden gem in Toledo and deserves to have a packed parking lot, but doesn't. Free admission with $7 shaded parking. Amazing and gorgeous art displays and information. A place to sit and play chess when we needed to rest our feet. Highly recommended experience for older kids and anyone looking for a peaceful afternoon of cultural exposure.
  • A very nice collection, little bit of many things. The more ancient collection of things is impressive. Something for every art taste. Recommended location to visit, maybe multiple times.
  • Drove 2 1/2 hours to visit this museum. I am happy to say that it was well worth the drive! Beautiful, inspiring, and thought provoking works of art. The building is very large but because you become so entranced, you don't realize how much you've walked.
  • Fantastic museum! They always get interesting exhibits and the permanent installations never disappoint. You can easily spend several hours here every visit. The glass exhibit is very impressive. We typically make the two hour drive at least once a year. Highly recommended.
  • We love this museum more than any other. The kids area is awesome, especially for kids with sensory or physical therapy needs because they have so many cool toys. Plus the exhibits are exciting.
