While I have been working in The Toledo area,  I visited the Toledo Museum of Fine Arts several times. Located in Toledo’s  Old West End,a crumbling and beautiful historic neighborhood, the museum surprises with a well curated and friendly atmosphere. They have a great collection of historic  paintings as well as a modern building with a seemingly very thorough glass exhibit. Here are some of my favorites. well worth a trip if you are in the area.
