About the Appleton

The museum’s permanent collection of approximately 18,000 objects include European, American, Asian, African, Contemporary and pre-Columbian art and artifacts; a series of temporary traveling exhibitions are presented throughout the year.

Founded in 1982, the museum was a gift from Arthur I. Appleton to the Ocala community. The City of Ocala donated the 44-acre site for the home of the museum, construction began in 1984 and the museum opened to the public in 1987. Originally built to display and preserve Mr. Appleton’s extensive art collection, today the Appleton is one of the South’s premier art museums and a leading cultural institution in Marion County.
