    Mud Hens Baseball-Made Famous by Klinger

    by spgood301 Written Nov 27, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the summer, be sure to check out the Toledo Mud Hens baseball team. They play in a beautiful new stadium right downtown. It's affordable, and a fun family atmosphere. And, yes, if you're a MASH fan, it's Klinger's team!

    Toledo Zoo

    by truesunn Written Jun 16, 2003

    Take a walk on the Wild Side! Exhibits include the African Savannah, the Artic, Primates, Reptiles, an Aquarium and a childrens petting zoo and playground! A great family day outing!

    The park is very clean, and the animals appear very well cared for. Lots of information is offered at exhibits including photos, documentation and audio guides.

    Weekends may be rather crowded, and I suggest being sure to bring a stroller or wagon for small children and drinks and snacks, too!

    ADMISSION:
    Adult $8.50
    Kids under 12 $5.50
    African Carousel $1.50 each

    A Frank Gehry Building in Toledo!

    by yooperprof Updated Apr 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The University of Toledo Center for the Visual Arts is immediately adjacent to the Toledo Art Museum. You could this as a test run for Gehry's masterpiece, the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Compare this to his design, also from the mid-90s, for the University of Minnesota Art Museum - I have a picture of it on my Minneapolis page.

    More Sculpture at the Art Museum

    by yooperprof Updated Apr 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not sure I understand this piece. It's "Untitled," by Ellsworth Kelly. According to a museum brochure, "Ellsworth Kelly has spent years exploring the aesthetic possibilities of simple, pure form. He reduces his painting and sculptures to as few elements as possible, even to the point of using a single shape and color."

    This fellow was very friendly. He kept following me back and fourth as I walked in front of his cage. He did not spit at me but he did stick his tonuge out once.
