“Small Museum - Nice Collection”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

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 is well worth a stop if you're in Syracuse. The suggested admission is $5 and is voluntary.

“Go for the ceramics collection”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

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 is definitely worth a visit, but I agree that it could be improved.

“Wonderful art museum”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

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!

“Wonderful small mid-mod museum.”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

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.

“Come for the architecture, Stay for the art”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

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 a small museum and doesn't take long to go through but it is worth the visit.
