The building is an impressive I M Pei design. But call beforehand to check that the permanent collection is on display. It wasn't when we went [October 2018]. Instead there were several exhibits looking back 50 years to the 60's era, to celebrate the building's...More

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.

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.

Whenever we travel we always stop by a local museum, and my kids have been many places. We were very interested in this museum because it was designed by I.M. Pei. The building itself and courtyard are beautiful, and my kids enjoyed the sculpture gardens...More
