Safety is a primary concern at TMA, and we remain committed to protecting all visitors and staff amid the COVID pandemic. Face coverings are recommended at the Toledo Museum of Art for all visitors and staff.

Anyone who wishes to continue to wear a face covering is both welcomed and supported. Face coverings continue to be available at all Museum entrances, upon request.

Questions and concerns? Please speak to our Visitor Experience team located at all Museum entrances or by calling 419.255.8000

Closed Mondays, Tuesdays, Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. 

PLEASE NOTE: On occasion, the Glass Pavilion and certain galleries may be close to the public for private events, renovation, or reinstallation. Please do call 419-255-8000, ext. 7448 and check the TMA website homepage to confirm that galleries and the Glass Pavilion are open, prior to your visit.


Admission to the Museum is always FREE but visitors are required to check-in at the Information desk when they arrive.


The Museum is just west of Toledo’s downtown business district, directly off Interstate 75, at 2445 Monroe Street at Scottwood Avenue. Our main business line is 419-255-8000.


Parking is free for Museum members. Well-lit, guarded lots are available on Grove Place behind both the main Museum building and the University of Toledo Center for the Visual Arts, as well as on Parkwood Avenue adjacent to the Glass Pavilion.

If there are any high traffic events at the Museum, event parking may be enacted. During event parking at TMA, guests will be asked to pay for parking in cash prior to entering the lots. Museum Members will be asked to show their membership card to receive free parking. Members unable to show their card will be asked to pay in cash and will be eligible for a refund by bringing their receipt to the Visitor Engagement desk within 7 days. 


Museum galleries are fully accessible. Free wheelchairs and strollers are available at each entrance of the main Museum building and the Glass Pavilion.

Coat/Bag Check

Coat rooms are located near the Grove Place entrance of the main Museum building and the Parkwood Avenue entrance of the Glass Pavilion. All backpacks, packages, and umbrellas must be checked at the door.

Cleaning Protocol

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, enhanced cleaning protocols have been established as daily routines here at TMA. While you are visiting, you will likely see staff cleaning high-touch areas and surfaces throughout the building. In addition, hand sanitizing stations located throughout the Museum will remain for visitor use.

Collection Safety

Gallery guards are posted throughout the Museum to ensure the safety of our collection.  Please be prepared to check your backpacks, infant carriers, umbrellas, large bags and tripods–anything that could swing around and unintentionally damage a work of art. Strollers are allowed in most galleries, as are infant carriers on the front of the body.  We ask that visitors also observe the following safety measures:

  • Visitors are asked to maintain a distance of 24 inches from works of art and cases.
  • When writing or sketching in the galleries, only pencils should be used. (Other media may be approved by our Registrar.)
  • Gallery walls should not be used to support paper for writing assignments, nor to be leaned against.
  • Backpacks, umbrellas, and other bulky items should be left with an entrance guard or in a coat room locker.
  • Eating and drinking are permitted in designated spaces only, not in the galleries.
  • Non-flash photography is welcome throughout the Museum, except in special exhibitions where prohibited by contract.  Look for signs or ask a gallery guard if unsure.
  • The Museum campus is tobacco-free.
  • We welcome visitors of all ages but ask that only adults control strollers and wheelchairs.
  • With the exception of assistance animals, pets are not allowed in the Museum.
