The Appleton has had the gift of getting really amazing shows to come through our town. I am impressed with their ability to have showings that I would not think our area could support....but they pull it off. Always a fun experience.

A diamond. The Appleton is staffed by knowledgable and helpful staff especially Mary Moore. The treasures are such a delight and the ever changing exhibitions are such a treat for a small town like Ocala. Thank you for the culture!

The entrance to the museum is breathtaking! The staff upon entry was fantastic and the museum itself is clean, tasteful and full of amazing art and artifacts. Every time we have gone we find new things to explore and love. If you're in the area definitely check it out!

I have traveled to several countries and toured many museums. The Appleton is a treasure of a museum in its decor, peaceful surroundings, and variety of exhibits. I go as often as I can as each exhibit transports me to another time and place. Great works of art.

Loved seeing the terrific collection of classic and contemporary art. The museum guards and the ticket seller were very helpful and friendly, as were the people in the gift shop. If you're in Ocala, you really need to visit the Appleton.

You can take your time to stroll through both floors on your own or take a docent-led tour. Special activities are offered throughout the year as well. The Sound Art series are casual, intimate concerts by soloists or small groups offered... More

This is a gem in Ocala. You would not expect a museum of this caliber in a community of this size but here it is. It has an amazing permanent collection and a wonderful variety of temporary exhibits.
