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 two times per year.
