In most cities, the art museum is usually one of the top attractions. In Syracuse, the Everson Museum is #20. Why? Because this museum is always closed. Clearly, there’s a lack of imagination in this institution as no one can seem to make this place...More

I've just spent over an hour in the museum and enjoyed it very much. The Visions of America and Darryl Hughto exhibits are especially impressive. I was disappointed that there was no Hughto-related work in the gift shop.

We went to the Everson because I hadn't been there in years. But not sure I would return. Large attractive building but not enough to entertain you for more than a few minutes. Not familiar with how to gain exhibits but it needs someone who...More

On the 3rd Thursday of every month a docent led walk will educate you to the lesser known details of the art you are witnessing. The traveling shows are always intriguing, and the ceramics collection is world class.

The building by I.M. Pei is quite impressive and there's a nice sculptural collection on the grounds. And the ceramics collection on the first floor is world class, as is the video collection. If you're not interested in ceramics, not much else here... very little...More
