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.

This is a splendid museum, with free admission. We no longer try to see all of it in one day. We only live 106 miles away, so we have made a mental note to come more often. Today, we concentrated on the African American artist Kehinde Wiley, and it was an excellent experience. Wiley paints modern reimaginings of famous old... More

I went to the Kehinde Wiley exhibit twice this week and loved everything about it. Children will especially enjoy it because each work is large and filled with brilliant colors and whimsical intrigue. This artist is a giant who has done something in the Art world never conceived before - a supremely talented genius who has extensively traveled the world... More

Do not be fooled, the Toledo Museum of Art hosts one of the best collections of art in the country. I do not have enough amazing adjectives to describe this museum. The art collection is incredible. The Impressionist collection is full of famous works. The glass pavilion is just as stunning as the original museum. While you are visiting, consider... More

Such a great museum in a very unexpected place. I went there to see the Sanaa glass pavilion, but was actually surprised that the museum collection is quite good. Not only that, but the museum seem to be very welcoming, trying hard to bring people in, with very didactic Signs.

It's a great place to relax & unwind! From having a great cafe, to having music at times, changing exhibits, and a sitting area with many games, wine tasting, and of course the art , it's a nice place to get away from the norm. Whether it's a date or time with family, it's a great way to spend time... More

I take my 14 month old to the family Centre. There are craft activities every week and multi sensory toys in the playroom. We love going for lunch at the cafe.
