  • 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.
