We were on vacation and had a rainy day so we spent the day inside at the museum. We enjoyed a presentation in the auditorium about an artist. Then we spent the day viewing the the great art and displays. It was very educational.

This is a very relaxing way to spend some time. A beautiful building and garden house a very nice well rounded collection. Enjoyed the equestrian focus of one room. Would have liked to have taken photos or to have been able to purchase a book that highlighted the museums collections.

We were there at Christmas and they had a large and lovely Christmas display offered apparently by a local doctor. It was lovely, but the museum is small. Made a nice side journey with friends before lunch.

Seeing the collections at the Appleton Museum has been a wonderful experience. We've been a couple of times now and have decided to become members. Each time we immersed ourselves in great temporary exhibits such as the Katherine Hepburn clothing from many of her movies, and lately the "Out of the Box" exhibits. Of course the history provided regarding the... More

Pleasantly surprised to find this museum in Ocala. It has a wonderful collection of European and American artists and wonderful exhibits. A true gem, multifaceted with a warm knowledgable staff. Great place to spend a few hours with friends, children or alone.

This is a very nice museum especially considering the small town location. It's permanent collection is quite impressive and also features numerous temporary exhibits you will enjoy. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The facility is beautiful and access and parking are very convenient.

We visited the Appleton Museum on a rainy day while my family visited during Spring Break. We all enjoyed the various exhibits. The museum is conveniently located and has lots of parking. It was a great thing to do on a day that we couldn't get out and play.
