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

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!

Cohesive mid-century modern museum in the middle of blighted downtown Syracuse. Wonderful building designed by I.M. Pei including interior decor and furnishings. Check out the vintage '60's stools in the women's rest room! Good permanent collection as well as China/ceramics wing.Gift shop a plus staffed by informed volunteer, James Walker. A must-see for the art & design fan.

We went to the Everson to see the building but ended up really enjoying the exhibits. They currently have a show on Gustav Stickley that was very interesting and led us to find the Stickley Museum in East Syracuse. It also inspired us, in part, to find the Johnson Art Museum at Cornell which was also designed by Pei. It's... More

This is an ok regional museum. The collection of ceramics and sculpture is interesting and we liked the focus there. The rest of the collection is a bit of hodge podge of painting from different eras. The building is striking and perhaps over shadows some of the work.

The Everson Museum is something everyone should visit at least once a year. Parking can be easy if you use the Oncenter gaarage and walk over - just a block. There is so much to see and learn from the exhibits - and the fun events around the holidays are not to be missed. Groups are welcome and that is... More
