“Collection of more than 30,000 works of art”
The Toledo Museum of Art was founded April 18, 1901. The seven incorporators included an attorney, an architect, an industrialist, a realtor, a journalist, and two artists—each focused on a shared vision of creating an institution that would enhance the community with art and art education. More than a century later, the Toledo Museum of Art is considered one of the finest museums in the country. Thanks to the benevolence of its founders, as well as the continued support of its members, the Toledo Museum of Art remains a privately-endowed, non-profit institution and opens its collection to the public—free of charge—six days a week, 309 days a year. Located inside the Grove Place entrance of the main Museum building, the Museum Café offers signature sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts. Begin your visit with a tasty treat, or take a break from the galleries for refreshment. The Café will remain open for dinner service when there are Symphony and Masters Series events in the Peristyle.
The Toledo Museum of Art has always been one of my favourite places to visit in Toledo. There is a wide range of artworks & historical artifacts, with something for everyone. It's a wonderful place to take children too. When we took my niece and nephew to the museum for the first time, a docent took the time to come over and point out some things that might be interesting to them. He knew exactly what to say to peak the interest of a busy child, and open his eyes to what was around him. I am so thankful for that!!! The glass blowing demonstration is also not to be missed. Be sure to allow lots of time, or multiple trips in order to truly enjoy all the museum has to offer. Make sure to stop at the Museum Cafe too.
What an amazing place to visit. I'm thrilled that we added this to our trip, beautiful art, the glass museum was stunning, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
A truly amazing attraction within Toledo, it allows you to see some beautiful pieces of art, give your mind a break from the day-to-day hustle, and come away feeling relaxed and centered.
