The first time I visited the Appleton was for a custom chopper and motorcycle event...go figure! This venue displayed these "works of art" just like works of art, with all the respect that should be given. The Appleton has events of all kind so simply keep your eyes open and you will be pleased at what they offer.

We enjoyed our time at the museum. It has permanent and temporary exhibits. It was especially good to visit at Christmas. We have been twice and each time we enjoyed our visit. It was not crowded either time.

I visited the museum when it has a showing of Norman Rockwell and it was excellent. The set up was good and we were able to see much of his work. The other art work in the museum was very interesting and I enjoyed just walking around and looking.

If you're into art this museum is a great place to visit. There are 2 floors to walk through, and there's always a new exhibit to see.

Excellent museum in a small town with displays changed often and representing great works. They do offer a couple of free days and a membership which is well worth it.
