I was so proud to say that I was from Syracuse when I visited Washington D.C. to visit the Art Neuvo/Art Deco exhibit in 2000 and realized that the Everson Museum had 4 or 5 pieces from their collection on display. The Everson has one of the most extensive pottery and ceramics collection in the country. They have also hosted... More

I went here with my college art history class for the day and it was quite the experience. They had beautiful pieces and our tour guide was very pleasant. They also have a cute gift shop inside. Great place to visit for those interested in history and art.

$5.00 per person (donation). We saw the Christmas Tree exhibition. It was unique. Trees & Wreaths of all sizes, lots of interesting & artistic decorations. Some traditional, some abstract, very entertaining & interesting. Plus...almost all the decorated trees are for sale! There were choirs singing, raffles, cookies & juice for everyone. There's a kids section, they can make clay sculptures.... More

My husband and I went here just out of the blue looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon kind of thing and there was so much to look at. I believe it was free but I don't really remember sorry about that. It was worth it though it just keeps going and going. I like the set up... More

The Everson is a work of art in itself! This is an IM Pei building and great to see. Their ceramics collection is top notch and all in visible storage. Great traveling exhibits and programs.

Our family visited the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse. Our tour lasted about an hour. We liked the Ceramic collection on the basement level & particularly liked the colorful pieces made by the Syracuse China Corporation years ago. Susan Roth's abstract art exhibition was on view in the upper level galleries. Everson Museum of Art architecture is beautifully designed... More

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
