Our Collections

The Toledo History Museum houses an extensive collection of objects, photographs and archival materials from all periods of Toledo's history. Our collections range from textiles and period clothing to household goods, transportation examples, and industrial tools.  These items reveal the stories of the many individuals, families and businesses that have had past or present connections to our area.

Our collections are available to visitors and researchers during museum hours, Saturdays from 12 to 5 pm and Sundays from 12 pm to 5 pm and by appointment.

Do You Have an Item to Donate to the Toledo History Museum?

The Toledo History Museum maintains many collections. New items are acquired in a number of ways, including selected donations from members of the public. Before an item is acquired for our collections, it undergoes a rigorous review process. Not all items are accepted, because not everything is appropriate for our collections, and because it is expensive to care for and provide access to collection items. If you are interested in donating items, please email us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
