Toledo Museum of Art Master Plan

BBB’s vision for the Toledo Museum of Art’s campus master plan is guided by the institution’s commitment to visitor engagement, education, and urban impact.

The master plan proposes to unify 42 acres to create a true campus experience. Opportunities to reshape the visitor approach, parking, and entry sequence to the museum, as well as the identification of future building sites, are coupled with a comprehensive reorganization of the museum interior. The main building has been optimized to improve clarity of wayfinding, maximize galleries, and support and reflect the museum’s core mission to educate. Long-term solutions were identified for critical art-related functions including storage, transit, and conservation. The master plan enhances the visitor experience in all aspects: viewing the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions, seamlessly finding and using amenities across the campus, and enjoying a renewed park-like landscape. BBB continues to work with TMA to advance the implementation of this multi-phased transformation of their campus and buildings.
