The Toledo History Museum is a nonprofit membership organization that cares for, showcases, and interprets authentic pieces of Toledo and U.S. history. Our rich offerings of programs and exhibitions are accessible to all. Our goal is to help our community build a sense of excitement for local history and stewardship of our legacy for generations to come.
THM opened its doors to the public in the Milmine-Stewart House in 2011. Since then, we've moved downtown and our collections have grown through research, acquisition, and contributions. THM has developed strong outreach activities, exhibits and education programs—both on-site and through our "Behind the Scenes" tours and Pop Up Exhibits. As we look back on the brief history of our organization, we are proud of what we've accomplished in such a short time but we acknowledge that we are a work-in-progress and there is plenty of work to do and progress to be made.
THM shares the Toledo story and the story of its people through exhibitions, programs, publications, and digital media. Our research volunteers serve people from throughout the U.S each year, from schoolchildren working on history projects to PhD students writing dissertations to filmmakers researching documentaries.
The Toledo History Museum is open Saturdays from noon to 5:00 pm and Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm and by appointment. Tours are available free of charge.
