The Appleton offers a great permanent collection as well as traveling exhibits that change several times throughout the year. 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. I recently attended a docent-led talk about the women featured in some of the works of art. It was so enlightening, not... More

I had not been to the Appleton in a long time. My friend and I visited during the Mac Stone Everglades Photograpy exhibit. It is worth going just to see this amazing exhibit. Each photo has a paragraph describing the species and location. There are lots of interesting bird photos from Lake Okeechobee. The museum is quiet and beautiful. Only... More

We found this stop to be very educational. The Museum was beautiful and very large. Plan on spending a few hours there looking at everything. We really enjoy wondering through the different periods of art work and primitives and would recommend anyone stop and have a look. Sorry no pics but they do not allow and photos.

The Appleton is trying new arts and entertainment programs, hopefully without letting go of some past favorites. There are summer concert series under the stars. They bring in traveling exhibitions. There is a static museum collection that is 'ok'. Being a member is inexpensive and provides first choice on tickets to all events.
