Well worth the visit

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.

The Appleton museum always offers interesting exhibits not found too often in a city the size of Ocala. Shalom Park is just a beautiful place to walk alone, take a friend, have a picnic or even plan a small outdoor garden wedding.

A great place for all ages. I went last to the Christmas exhibits! What a lovely treat to see these collections of santas, nativities, and other decorative items. The museum has a wide collection of historic and cultural items plus special exhibits throughout the year.

This museum is a hidden gem in the woods. Their exhibits are outstanding, have a really nice gift shop, and their education classes are first rate. They also sponsor a calligraphy guild.

First time Christmas 2016. Fabulous display of trees and Villages. Magical for sure !! My 2yr. old friend was a bit intimidated by the sparkle at the entrance, so I think more appropriate for 3yrs. and up.

I love to go each Christmas to see the Upton display. The family donated ornaments, which are displayed throughout the museum on many Christmas trees. They also have a huge Santa display, Nutcrackers, Buyer Carolers, Nativity's, and Christmas villages. On the first Saturday of December they have a family free day. They have activities and free snacks for the family's.... More
