  • Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Special exhibits were excellent and Mr. Appleton's collection is amazing. Sorry there is not cafe or we would have spent more time here. Great little gift shop too. ...  more »
  • This museum is something you would expect to see in a much larger city. The exhibits are great and change often making return trips a must!

  • Really great museum. My favorite feature was the "art room" filled with a bunch of supplies for you to make your own masterpiece. I could have spent all day there.
  • We went for the Christmas exhibit. It was a very nice museum. Because it was Christmas they had Santa and snacks for the kids.
  • This museum has a great permanent collection, and they always have some sort of temporary exhibition to fascinate the locals, all at a very low price. Discount available for college students and AAA members.
  • First-time visitors invariably remark that the Appleton seems a grander institution than they would expect in Ocala. Maybe that's a back-handed compliment, but however you look at it, the Appleton is a little gem. Within its sleek frame are European, American and contemporary sculptures, along with African, Asian, Islamic and pre-Columbian artifacts and antiquities. Maybe the Appleton can't afford to land top-flight exhibitions, but when Chicago industrialist Arthur Appleton chose to give Ocala his treasures, Ocala was smart to accept.
  • I volunteered at Appleton for a long time and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The museum is quite worthwhile considering its location and size, and I adored the exhibits.
