  • Excellent museum with something for everyone. They have classic art as well as modern, contemporary, sculpture, and a rotation of traveling exhibits that is always interesting. The museum also offers classes in everything from painting to blacksmithing and glass work. Plan to spend at least a few hours here, and look into the classes if you are interested in trying your hand at those skills. Be prepared for the paid parking (free for members) but admission is free. We are thankful for such a great institution in Toledo.
  • This place was absolutely awesome! We went a little late so we will definitely have to go back to see some more things. They have a hanging flower exhibit at the moment that we would like to go back and see, it looked beautiful from the doors, we we're just too late to get in. There are so many different types of art from so many different cultures. Absolutely beautiful.
  • I grew up going here. Fantastic, beautiful, brilliantly run. Huge range of art. Whenever I return to Toledo, this is a must. Always inspiring. Lovely people working here. Great museum store. Fun things and much original art from glassmakers to textiles to relief prints to buy.
  • This is one of the best hidden gems in all of Toledo. There's some fantastic galleries to view, and some really unique pieces to enjoy. We always seem to run out of time when we visit. Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates art.
  • The Toledo Museum of Art is a fantastic family trip. The museum itself is a very beautiful old building divided into a series of themed galleries. The family area has arts and crafts that the children can do after you are finished looking at all the masterpieces in the gallery. This is a great place to have a family trip or date or even a nice quiet solo afternoon.
