The Toledo Museum of Art is one of the founding member museums of the Museum Travel Alliance (MTA). Join other travelers interested in cultural voyages. Each trip is led by a curator or scholar capable of offering unique insights and features special access to cultural sites.


What is the Museum Travel Alliance?

MTA is a consortium of museums whose patrons and members are passionate about cultural travel. MTA offers its constituents a broad selection of curated, luxury travel opportunities and behind-the-scenes access to the world’s cultural treasures led by renowned scholars and curators.
