The excellent ceramics collection has been displaced to a leaky crowded basement. It is still worth spending a couple hours at. Prime display areas are given over to 'modern' artists and exhibits, to quote Andy Warhol "art is what you can get away with". The building is a fantastic design, but also an example of great a design tripped up... More

The Everson has consistently delivered excellent exhibitions to the Syracuse area. Their permanent collection is wide ranging and should get out of storage more often. The spiral staircase is graceful all by itself.

I took my three daughters 10 and under to the Everson on a rainy Sunday for the Family Fun event. First we looked at the artwork on the first & second floors in which the girls were not very interested in. Then, we went downstairs & the girls spent quite a bit of time designing their own modern 3d fabric... More

I truly love Pei buildings -- the campus where I work features one of his buildings and the museum in the city in which I live is a Pei building as well. Both are examples of the openness and air that he permits... but Everson has always struck me as poorly kept and, especially in some of the interiors, a... More

My son and I went to the Everson to check out an exhibit and gain extra credit for a school class. I had no idea how extensive and varied it was! As a history teacher, I was in awe over the antiquities section. I highly recommend the Everson for a peacefully engaging visit.

What a hidden Gem the Everson is, something many folks visiting to Syracuse may never have heard of or expected. The Everson is a pleasant museum that isn't too large but isn't tiny by any imagination, easily seen in a few hours features three floors of varying art. The main floor is mostly large sculptures and the gift shop with... More

The Everson is a small gallery that you can leisurely see the entirety of in about an hour. The building itself seems a real hit or miss based on other reviews. I liked it - it had an interesting look to it inside and out and was open and bright in the lobby. The highlight of the collection is certainly... More

If you happened to be in downtown Syracuse during the first weeks of December, a must stop was the annual Festival of Trees. You were immediately rewarded with the over 160 decorated trees, wreaths, wall hangings and paintings glittering throughout the 3 levels of the museum. The mood was electric with the sounds of the holidays, sights of the decorations... More

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
