While we are excited to welcome you back to the galleries, it is important to note that your next visit to TMA will look different. With so many changes taking place, you may have questions about your upcoming visit. Answers to frequently asked questions about visiting TMA can be found here. If your question is not on the list, please contact CustomerService@toledomuseum.org; Museum representatives are happy to assist you.
Museum Hours of Operation
Effective Tuesday, June 23, the Toledo Museum of Art will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with the hours between 10 a.m. and noon reserved for those who are most at-risk of COVID-19.
Closed Mondays, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Certain works of art may not be on view at times and certain galleries may be closed for renovation or reinstallation. Access to particular galleries or works of art can be determined by calling the Museum. We regret any inconvenience to visitors.
Admission to the Museum is always FREE but due to COVID-19, both members and nonmembers are asked to reserve a museum pass in advance at tickets.toledomuseum.org in order to enter the Museum. This will help keep crowds at a safe capacity and encourage social distancing.
Twenty museum passes are available each half hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. No museum passes are available during the last half hour the Museum is open (3:30 – 4 p.m.). Once reserved, museum passes cannot be transferred to another date or time nor to a different person.
TMA representatives are available via phone should you have trouble reserving a museum pass online or do not have access to the internet. Please call (419) 255-8000 ext. 7448 and a TMA representative will assist you.
Entry to the Museum is not guaranteed should you arrive without reserving a museum pass in advance.
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.
When TMA reopens to the public Tuesday, June 23, parking will be free through Tuesday, July 7. The $8 parking fee for nonmembers will resume Wednesday, July 8.
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 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.
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.
