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.

The Everson is a nice small art museum. The building itself is quite impressive. The collection has a representation some major artists - Bierstadt, Henry Moore,a Gilbert Stuart "George Washington," George Inness and a small Jackson Pollack to mention a few. Everson is renowned for its ceramic collection, which is quite impressive and both international and historic in scope. It... More

The reason to go to the Everson is its ceramics collection. However, it's stuck away in the basement in a room with a low ceiling. Perhaps better hightlight the Syracuse China collection? I missed this entirely, but another reviewer mentioned it. Paintings nicely discplayed on the second floor. If you like pottery, from very old to ver new, the Everson... More

I have been here several times. It is less interesting and uninviting than I had hoped. There is little to see and I wish it was a better place.

This is a great little museum. My wife loved the collection of antique clothes. Also had a display of Stickley furniture. Lots of pottery, especially Syracuse China. A very unique building!
