Help Us Preserve the Future of Toledo's Past

logoSince 2005, your Toledo History Museum has been committed to exploring the richly layered cultural, social and political narrative of the Toledo story.  We've also been providing a forum for issues that surround the making and meaning of history through stimulating lectures, sold-out educational tours and special programs.  Our relationship with you and the community is central to our mission.

With your assistance, we've been able to:

  • Co-Sponsor the Region 1 Ohio History Day, a free social studies program that meets the State of Ohio’s Learning Standards and engages students in a dynamic, creative, and rigorous learning process along the way.
  • Host our popular Behind the Scenes tours throughout Toledo.
  • Host the sold-out Unholy Toledo tours.
  • Host the Greater Toledo History Trail—a THM program that introduces visitors to the wealth of heritage sites in our region and encourages them to explore and build on the connection between the sites.
  • Collaborate with 13ABC's ToledoMe on telling the Toledo story.
  • Serve as history consultants to ProMedica's Steam Plant History Wall.
  • Conduct the annual Toledo Regional Tour for Leadership Toledo.
  • Invite experts to speak at our Black History Forum.
  • Provide valuable research tools for students as well as interested adults.
  • Refresh our exhibits so regular visitors can learn something new about Toledo whenever they visit the Museum.

Your gifts support:

  • Acquisitions
    • School tours
    • Exhibits and lectures
    • Community outreach
    • Collection conservation
    • Classroom visits

    To continue our leadership role of preserving and promoting our city's heritage, we have work we need to do. And for that, we need your help. We have developed a long term strategic plan with ambitious goals and to realize them, we need to build new galleries, improve access to our exhibits and collections, and attract and retain the storytellers, interpreters, and educators who will keep us vibrant for the next generation.

    On behalf of THM, we ask you to think hard about the value of your history and the history of Toledo and the surrounding region, and consider how you can help extend our reach and preserve our role well into the next generation. Without your help, that history is at risk. We need your financial support to preserve the future of our past.
