Bad lighting, grammar problems on labels, poor examples of artist works, poor exterior sidewalk repair out of keeping with architect's vision.

I have never enjoyed the Everson. It is cold an unfriendly. My experience the other night took the cake. They touted a date night. Promotion said: Tour exhibits, dance, eat food from food trucks . . . One food truck and museum closed! The only real entertainment were the skateboarders around the fountain. Why would you host an event, then... More

I love the beautiful I.M. Pei building but the exhibits inside are not really worth the trip. There just isn't anything exciting to see. Parking is difficult as well.

I liked the outside movies they have in the summer. I just wished they had more of them. Last year was my first time going and it was great time. Only thing I didn't like was the long walk to the rest room.

I am sorry to say but this museum is not worth a visit. The building itself looks like nothing outside even though I believe I M Pei designed it. It looks like it needs power washing. There is no parking available except on the street which is very limited. There is a garage two blocks away but really no one... More

I hadn’t visited the Everson Museum is two score years; since the wild-n-wooly heyday of Director Jim Harithas’ reign in the early 70s. The wonderful physical structure by I.M. Pei still looks muscular and new but the mood inside has devolved from a haven for the avant-garde to a staid venue for old fogey exhibits. From a Yoko Ono shock-fest... More

As a new resident of the area, we decided to check out the Everson Museum for a specific exhibit "The History of Video Games." We thoroughly enjoyed that exhibit and were pleasantly surprised of the permanent collections of American Art and Pottery. There is a hands-on area for children young and old which was fun to work with clay and... More

this has to be one of the best holiday celebrations around while supporting a great cause-the museum. this was our 4th or 5th time around, and we always find multiple holiday pieces to purchase that are beautiful while supporting a great cause. the trees et al and decor are beautiful and the food and drink offered coupled with the holiday...

The Everson is famous for their ceramic collection and the prize piece that was stolen and thankfully recovered. Their collection of paintings have a few gems but it's rather limited in scope. They are also best known for hosting an exhibit of Yoko Ono's back in the early 70s. John Lennon was there and I got to meet him. He... More

My son and I went for a visit and enjoyed the art that was featured there. Unfortunately, a few exhibits were closed, including one of the featured exhibits that was supposed to be open for another week. The woman at the desk said she didn't know why, but it was closed early to prepare for the next one.
