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

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
