About

Since its founding in 1901, the Toledo Museum of Art has earned a global reputation for the quality of our collection, our innovative and extensive education programs, and our architecturally significant campus.

And 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.

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.
