The focal point of the Appleton Cultural Center, the Appleton Museum of Art was originally built to display and preserve the art collection of Arthur I. Appleton. Today the museum is part of a 44-acre complex which also includes the Ocala Civic Theatre and the Pioneer Garden Club.
With 30,000 square feet devoted to gallery space, the galleries are arranged in a quadrangle which surrounds an interior courtyard and fountain. Visitors can view collections of art and artifacts from America as well as Africa, Europe, Asia and more. Many exciting traveling exhibits and special events are held throughout the year, including Art-oberfesta where guests enjoy an evening of song and dance in the courtyard. The Appleton is open Tuesday through Sunday and offers a variety of group tours.
