The Appleton is an unexpected surprise for Ocala. Definitely a museum you would expect to find in a much larger city.

Loved the exhibits. We were there to see the works by John Audubon. The kids had a great time in the craft classroom.

You will not be disappointed with a visit to this Museum. The art collection is top of the line and the staff is courteous and always willing to help show you around. This attraction is exciting and a hidden gem.

I Loved this Museum. I went to see a Frieda Kahlo collection they had and was amazed at how beautiful and Modern this Museum is. You will not regret visiting this Museum. Who would've guessed that Ocala had such a Gem? Highly Recommended!
