Wide range of art on display. Art from all periods of time. The building itself is beautiful. It is very inexpensive to look through the exhibits. It will take a few hours if you want to see everything.

A varied collection in a wonderful setting, with friendly people. What's not to like? That African collection seemed especially interesting.

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.
