This museum houses a one time private collection of beautiful lithophanes. I doubt there is another like it. Beautiful! Located at Toledo Botanical Gardens which is a treasure in itself

Our very inthusiastic tour guide made our experience much more than expected. The art was well displayed. It's a small museum speciallizing in Lithophanes and takes no more than an hour or two to take in. Well worth it.
