Learned so much
kwi 2021
I rate this as an excellent museum because i learned so much from it. The docents/volunteers were generous in sharing their knowledge with us and their love of glass/art/history. The hour spent there was a mixture of amazement that glass has been around for so long ( since thousands of years b.c. ) and awe that pieces of it have survived intact for so long.

Also enjoyed seeing the many modern pieces of art glass.

An oversized curio cabinet
lut 2020
Just a low-slung glass out building in the middle of what could be decent green space. The building has ugly, hotel-esque curtains that are closed more often than not. Inside, the collections are just arranged on shelves as if in a large curio cabinet.

A hidden gem of beautiful craftsmanship

A beautiful mixture of historic and modern glasscraft in a nice environment. Worth visiting and allowing time for when going to the art museum.

Must-see for lovers of glass objects and art!
sty 2020
Have visited numerous times with spouse, family, and friends! Truly a great way to spend a couple of hours if you love glass objects and art. The collection ranges from antiquity to modern contemporary, with so many well-known glass artists represented, including Tiffany, Carder (Steuben), LaMonte, and Chihuly. Of course, Toledo was home to the great Libbey Glass company and the Toledo Museum of Art gave rise in the '60s to the art and science of glassmaking with glass artisans Harvey Littleton and Dominick Labino. Check the calendar for the glass-making demonstrations, special exhibits and events.

Having always been fascinated with the art/craft of glassblowing and all types of glasswork, this was a great visit! Beautiful exhibits from all over the world and different time epochs, demonstrations that weren’t the same every time, a really cool building, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a nice cafe with yummy food and drinks! Loved it!!

Amazing museum with live glass blowing demonstrations! We very much enjoyed our time in the glass museum. The demonstration was very educational as well as entertaining.

Beautiful building and great glass history
gru 2019 • Znajomi
Love this award winning building and how it ties to nature. I was a child at TMA and remember the old wooden cases for the collection. I remember the old glass wing with the Labino glass mural, and the old hot shop. TMA pulls it all together in this beautiful jewel of a building where even the restrooms glisten with well designed glass. Try to time your visit for a hot shop demo. Park for $8 behind the museum. Visit the main collection and walk out the front door to the glass pavilion. Admission is free.

More than watching someone blow glass
sie 2019
Went to see the advertised glass blowing demonstration and was pleasantly surprised that there was much more to it than just watching someone blow glass. Each step of the process was explained. In addition to the process, the different tools were explained as to what they are made of, why and how they are used. Pleasantly surprised that is was very educational but not too technical.

Niche
sie 2019
This is not really a separate thing to see, but is more so a part of the Art Museum, and should really be visited at the same time. It is different from the main building though, with a different emphasis, though its interest is more niche than the main building.

Impressive Glass Collection you don't Want to Miss
sie 2019
The Glass Pavilion was on my itinerary when my husband and I visited Toledo, Ohio.

The Toledo Museum of Art's Glass Pavilion opened in 2006. The pavilion is made up of more than 360 glass panes weighing between 1,300 and 1,500 pounds.

As you enter the Glass Pavilion, you will see Pinkerton, a bronze sculpture on a steel base which was created in 2004 by Jun Kaneko. I have included four of my favorite pieces of glass art in this review.

The first is the blown glass Chandelier, Campiello Del Remer #2 by Dale Chihuly. This piece was originally configured in 1996 with its present configuration in 2006. The chandelier was split in two with one half going to the Kemper Museum in Kansas City and the other half to the Toledo Museum of Art. This unusual piece of art consists of 243 pieces.

The most unusual piece I liked was the Dress Impression with Train by Karen LaMonte. This piece was designed in 2005 and cast in 2007. It's a beautiful life-size cast glass structure.

One of the most striking pieces is the Pienezza by Toots Zynsky. Its filet de verre (glass threads) were fused and thermoformed in 2017.

The colorful Vitrana was designed by Dominick Labino for the Toledo of Art and executed in 1969. It's composed of 33 cast panels in steel framework weighing approximately 1,000 pounds.

I appreciated many other pieces of glass, but too numerous to include in this review. If you are visiting Toledo, be sure to include the Glass Pavilion in your travels.
