    I've gone to the TMA at least once a year my entire life. I love the TMA, and it's been there through many moments of my life. I've seen so many amazing exhibits ... but I've never been treated as horribly as I was during our visit today. I felt discriminated against and afraid of the security guards who kept constantly following me in a very obvious fashion, I'm assuming because I have an alternative appearance (recently dyed my hair purple) and there was some confusion when we first entered because my bag (which adjusts from a shoulder bag, to...Read More

    I love it but I hate when the times are. I would really love to go after I get off work but I'm always off an hour before it closes. It suck I love it and next step to go to the glass gallery. It looks beautiful from the outside now all I gotta do is go to the inside Lol

    Toledo native here and TMA was always a field trip highlight when I was a girl. I have since lived in other, larger American cities, but have found that no other museum can match the quality of TMA in my opinion. The fact that it is free just cannot be beat by most major museums outside of Washington DC (who has their share of great, free museums). I remember being so excited when I lived in Atlanta that TMA had loaned the High Museum some of their Impressionism collection, as I was looking forward to seeing the great works of Monet and Manet...Read More

    What a surprise. Having visited the worlds museums I personally would place this as the most exciting museum experience I have ever had. The collection is impeccably curated and accessible. This place is a gem.

    A world class museum that is FREE to visit! The collection is largely classics and features respected old arts from around the world. If you are in Toledo, it's a crime to miss out on such an amazing museum!

I've seen so many amazing exhibits ... but I've never been treated as horribly as I was during our visit today. I felt discriminated against and afraid of the security guards who kept constantly following me in a very obvious fashion, I'm assuming because I have an alternative appearance (recently dyed my hair purple) and there was some confusion when we first entered because my bag (which adjusts from a shoulder bag, to a messenger bag, to a backpack, depending on my needs) was being worn as a backpack, which are not allowed (which I didn't realize.) I felt like I was being treated as a threat, which is frankly absurd. We were dressed elegantly and on an outing with our children, not trying to pull off an art heist. When I had to run out to our car to get a different shirt for my 2-yr-old after eating lunch in the restaurant, I felt fear under the accusing glares of the guards at every turn (many of them the same guards, who were walking circles several feet away from me through the entire museum the entire visit) that I would be stopped, questioned, and searched or something absurd.
I feel that perhaps you need to give your guards some cultural sensitivity training so they don't harass a perfectly innocent stay-at-home Mom just trying to have a nice time with her homeschooled kids at an educational exhibit. I was considering buying a membership and bringing my children to the classes, but now I will be hesitant to ever return to the TMA.

I have since lived in other, larger American cities, but have found that no other museum can match the quality of TMA in my opinion. The fact that it is free just cannot be beat by most major museums outside of Washington DC (who has their share of great, free museums). I remember being so excited when I lived in Atlanta that TMA had loaned the High Museum some of their Impressionism collection, as I was looking forward to seeing the great works of Monet and Manet but was thoroughly disappointed that I would have to pay $25 plus an additional $10 to see the Impressionism pieces. I was like, ummmm, I'll be going home to visit Toledo in a few months and I can see them there for free! LOL. So I passed on the High. TMA spoils Toledoans who are art fans. Very rarely can you find such a great museum that won't cost you a utility bill to take the spouse and kids to go and visit. Glad to see so many visitors also loved TMA and now that I have moved back to Toledo, I am enjoying TMA more than I did as a kid and so are my kids.
