An occasional visit is nice, since it's never crowded. Quite small compared to museums in the big cities, but art is presented well.

For years my wife and I were members and enjoyed visits to see their changing international exhibitions as well as their huge private collections. Now we don't live nearby but will still travel on occasion to visit when collections interest us.

Appleton Museum is a real jewel for the City of Ocala. We love Museums, and have visited many around the world, believe me when I tell you this is an excellent, sophisticated museum.

The Asian art exhibit is amazing!!! Peaceful setting, family-oriented with a new children's center. Hosts international films throughout the year. Beautiful gardens. Easy parking. Nearby to Silver Springs State Park. Spend a weekend day between the two sites with the family, enjoying lunch inbetween.
