I came here a few weeks back with my parents and my cousin's kids. It was one of the hottest days of the summer, but over all, I had a wonderful experience here and I think my family did too. Because it was so hot, not many of the animal outside were active, but that didn't really take away from the experience I had. There was a great variety of animals to see and I never once found myself bored. I would definitely go back, and I would definitely recommend it to my friends who have never been.

MOST people I know don't even know this museum exists. That's their loss. Situated in a stunning building in downtown Syracuse that looks like some sort of surreal castle, this museum is pretty interesting. I'm surprised it has such low ratings on Yelp considering how imposing and spectacular the structure is. One of the most amazing and iconic landmarks of this wonderful city in Central NY State. It's the MOST impressive building in the city, actually.

If you're in Syracuse, broke, and/or into ceramics, do NOT miss this pay-as-you-wish museum. On the lowest floor are some of the most astonishing and varied clay masterpieces by artists all over the world. Yes, there is beautiful pottery. But there are sculptures made to resemble cardboard, leather, wood, styrofoam, and all manner of other media. On upper levels are rotating exhibits, some ancient art, modern paintings like what one would see in NYC's Whitney.
