The Toledo Museum of Art

The Toledo Museum of Art’s collection of more than 30,000 works of art ranks among the finest in the United States. In our more than 35 galleries, Sculpture Garden, and Glass Pavilion, discover important, popular, and outstanding works of art, including paintings and sculptures by Bearden, Cézanne, Calder, Close, Cole, Degas, van Gogh, El Greco, Holbein, Kiefer, Matisse, Miró, Monet, Picasso, Rembrandt, Rubens, and Turner; masterworks from antiquity and Asia; decorative arts; and highlights from our renowned glass collection.

Admission to the Museum is free. There is a free tour on Saturdays from 2-3pm which I though we could join in. There are also some interesting exhibitions going on. Please see the link below for more information. http://www.toledomuse...

We could carpool from Ann Arbor. There is a park and ride off US23 exit #41. The drive would take approximately one hour. If we plan to leave around 12pm, we would get plenty of time to attend the free tour and see other exhibitions in the museum. Early dinner at a local area and we head back in the evening around 7pm.

    Great pick! Friendly people, a fun time. Dinner at Tony Packo's was a lot of great conversation and good laughs!! I'd do a road trip anytime with my carpool gang!! Mike truly was the "host with the most," from cruising us down to Toledo and back in style to being an excellent dinner host! Thanks! :)

    Had the greatest time! The Small World Exhibit was excellent and very humbling. I will need to go back again as there is a lot that I could not see. And thanks to everyone for coming!

    The European collections were incredible. All of my favorite and most famous artists were well represented. The meet up participants were fun too. I had a great and pleasant carpool for the trip. Thanks Mike. You were a great host and gentleman--much appreciated!

  • Adwoa

    Good morning! I am excited about our adventure. What location and time can we rondevue? (Hope thst's spelled right:) Shall we just meet at the admissions desk at 1 p.m.?

    January 28, 2012

  • Mike P.

    Just a reminder, if you are planning on joining us for dinner at Tony Packo's, its listed as a separate event. It is very appreciated if you sign up on the other meetup page, so we can give an accurate number to the restaurant

    January 28, 2012

  • Gopa

    I sent an email with contact info. See you guys at the park and ride tomorrow at 12pm or so. Please be there on time if you would like to car pool with the rest of the group. We will leave there at 12:30 sharp! If we can, we will divide into two carpools based on whether ppl want to go to Tony Packo's or not. See you tomorrow!

    Hi Lee, my number...313-720-0250. I will be ready by 10:45 a.m. tomorrow.

    January 27, 2012

  • Lee K

    Hi! It looks like Adwoa and I will be carpooling from 12 and John R in Madison Heights, departing at 11:10 a.m (latest). We will proceed to Dearborn Heights to carpool with Mike P. See above. He has room for himself and three others, so as of this writing, it looks like there is room for one more person in Mike's car. If you are that lucky person, let us know. **** Please don't just "show up" in Madison Heights, as we might be full. ******* We are all going to Tony Packo's.

    January 27, 2012

  • Adwoa

    Dearborn is on the way to Toledo so if we start in madison hgts...it eill work.

    January 27, 2012

  • Adwoa

    Hi Gopa. Anything I can do to help, please let me know. I will be on this trip.
    @ Lee-- I live near Madison Heights, so Lee can we coordinate driving together? I want dinner after the museum too.

    January 27, 2012

  • Lee K

    Mike, I was the person who suggested meeting at 12 and John R, right off I-75 in Madison Heights. If there are no takers, I could meet you in Dearborn and carpool. Or, if one or two meet me in Madison Heights, we could proceed on to Dearborn. Thus, either way, I'm definitely interested! I'm Tony Packo's, as well.

    January 26, 2012

  • Mike P.

    If you are in the Dearborn/Dearborn Heights area and want a ride, please e-mail me. I will be leaving about 12:00 noon and I am planning on going to Tony Packo's for dinner afterwards. I have room for three people in my car.

    I would prefer to carpool with people not going to Tony Packo's.
    Coming from Dearborn, willing to drive (although my car is a gas guzzler). Bites . . . anybody . . . .

    I don't have a pool in my car, but I am driving from Ann Arbor and will be happy to give anyone a ride. I do need to be back to A2 by 6:00, so no Tony Packo.

    January 24, 2012

  • Mary Ann R.

    My husband and I are going and are in favor of Tony Packo's at 6pm. We are leaving from Brighton and could give a ride to one or two people around there.

    I am in Canton, without a car - can anyone carpooling stop to pick me up? If not, i might be able to get to Plymouth too for the park & ride.

    January 24, 2012

  • SVS

    Hi
    I would love a ride as part of a carpool (I live in a2). Am not particularly interested in Tony Packo's.

    January 24, 2012

  • Gopa

    I will send an email out to the attendees with contact information and other details a couple of days before the meetup. It will include Lee's, Mike's and my phone numbers. Am looking forward to seeing everyone!

    January 23, 2012

  • Gopa

    We will have two carpool areas as that sounds like it would be most convenient. One is off of I-75 and 12 mile area. Lee, I will let you decide where you want to form the park/ride since I am not familiar with that area. Could you please email me your number so that we can be in touch on that day? I will be at the Plymouth Park and Ride which is off of US 23, exit 41. Those of you interested in carpooling please meet either of us at the two carpool areas between 12:15 to 12:30pm.

    January 23, 2012

  • Rosanne

    I said yes for going to Packos yet that does depend on the carpool I will be riding with.

    January 23, 2012

  • Mike P.

    The dinner time posted on this meetup, should be 6:00PM, not 7:00PM. The museum closes at 6:00pm, so we should leave right before it closes to avoid the rush(about 5:45). Tony Packo's is only ten minutes away from the museum. Please sign up on the Tony Packo meetup, so we know how many people are attending dinner afterwards. Thank You!

    I 2nd the vote for going to Tony Packos at 6pm.

    January 23, 2012

  • Rosanne

    Is Tony Packos at 6 or 7 pm? Two different times are given. I vote for 6 pm. Looks like we are coming from different areas. Is the goal to all meet up together for carpooling or is the goal to all meet up at the Toledo Museum? All meeting up at the museum will probably mean different carpool places. Is that right? I am a new member so excuse all my questions.

    January 23, 2012

  • Lee K

    See above, I have offered rides or am trying to form a car pool near the I-75 corridor. (Plymouth and Ann Arbor are way out of my way). I'm going to the restaurant.

    January 22, 2012

  • Mike P.

    Gopa added a separate meetup to Tony Packo's for 6:00 the same day. If you are planning on going to Packo's for dinner after the museum, please rsvp so we can tell them how many people are comming and we can all sit together. If you do NOT plan on going to Packo's for dinner, and you are in a carpool, please make the driver aware.

    Lee, I will find a place and let you know in a couple of days. Noon sounds great.

    January 22, 2012

  • Gopa

    Is there another parking area we could meet at? I am driving from Novi and can take 4 more with me. The closest place I could think of was the Plymouth Park and Ride...

    January 22, 2012

  • Rosanne

    I live in the Livonia area. Should I still meet at the Plymouth Park lot?

    January 22, 2012

  • Lee K

    Sure, let me know a car park near an I-75 exit. Around noon? I am very looking forward to enjoying the dinner at Tony Packo's afterwards. http://www.tonypacko.com/ Never been, sounds great!

    BTW, I have a great driving record, no DUI's, full insurance, etc. and my tires will be checked over when I get my oil changed this week. These are reasonable questions for people to ask.

    Lee, thank for volunteering. I live in Dearborn area could we arrange to meet and drive together?

    January 22, 2012

  • Lee K

    Hi. I'm interested in carpooling. I have a van and could take 3 others. I'm coming from I-75, north of Detroit. Could make pitstops in 12 Mile/John R area, Detroit/Downriver. Or could take ride. My van would use at least $25 in fuel.

    January 22, 2012

  • Mike P.

    I don't have a van, but I'll be glad to drive a couple people. Also I got the ok from Gopa for a meetup at Tony Packo's for dinner afterwards, so that should be a lot of fun too!

    January 22, 2012

  • Rosanne

    See you at the Plymouth carpool lot! I do not have a van.

    January 21, 2012

  • Gopa

    The best place to carpool from would be the Plymouth Park and Ride. It it off of US -23 exit 41. I suggest we all meet there between 12:15pm to 12:30pm. We could then pile into a few cars and pay $4 each to the person taking the trouble to drive. It should take us about an hour from there. Anyone has a van!?

    January 9, 2012

  • Rosanne

    Hi! I live in Livonia and would love to carpool too!

    January 9, 2012

  • Tammie T.

    Hi! I live in Plymouth and would like to carpool also. :-)

    January 8, 2012

  • Mike P.

    I suggest we go to Tony Packos for dinner afterwards.
