  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Wow, I never expected such an museum in Toledo. I just saw the 20th century collection but that was World Class and well exhibited. If you love art you have to go there! The glass pavilion was interesting too. And it's just $7 for the parking. No entrance fee. I will be back.
  • Has a astonishingly significant array of works for a small city. It takes its educational mission seriously, sometimes quaintly so. The glass collection is exceptional. The mediaeval holdings are very interesting. The whole collection can be seen without being overwhelmed.
  • A great collection. Admission is free. They have amazing special exibitions fairly often. The glass pavilion also has regular demos. I live here and go about once a month and we always bring visitors. GO!
