Since its founding in 1901, the Toledo Museum of Art has earned a global reputation for the quality of its collections, innovative and extensive education programs and architecturally significant campus. Thanks to the benevolence of its founders, as well as the continued support of its members, TMA remains a privately endowed, non-profit institution and opens its collection to the public, free of charge. The Museum seeks to become the model art museum in the country, leading the way in genuinely and creatively engaging its communities and fostering a sense of belonging for all its audiences.

TMA provides a comprehensive summary of all of its activities to the public every year.
TMA is led by an executive management team overseen by the Museum's Board of Directors.
The Toledo Museum of Art’s member magazine is published three times per year.
