Museum galleries are fully accessible, and free wheelchairs and strollers are available at main entrances.
The Museum is funded by members and private donors and receives less than 1 percent of its funding from government sources. Members not only support art in the Toledo community, they receive significant value for their membership. This includes: free parking, reduced class fees, special members-only events, discounts in the Museum store, a subscription to arTMAtters magazine and much more. To learn more visit our member page.
The Toledo Museum of Art's architecturally significant campus is the gem of the Glass City. Our Neoclassic, marble-clad main building is joined by a Frank Gehry-designed Center for the Visual Arts and the newest addition, the Toledo Museum of Art Glass PavilionTM.
The Glass Pavilion, designed by Tokyo-based SANAA, is an architectural wonder whose interior and exterior walls are made of curved glass panels. Surrounded by green spaces, an expanding outdoor sculpture garden and the celebrated Victorian homes of Toledo's historic Old West End neighborhood, our campus offers a visual delight for all tastes.
The Toledo Museum of Art is world-renowned for its collection of Old Master paintings, decorative arts and glass. In addition, the Museum has growing collections of contemporary, Asian and African art as well as art from antiquity. The Museum is admired for both the quality and comprehensiveness of its collection, which continues to grow through the acquisition process. There is always something new to see at TMA.
Free daily glass blowing demonstrations in the Glass Pavilion bring TMA's extensive glass collection to life. Learn how glass is made and how the studio glass movement, born in Toledo, changed the face of glassmaking.
