I loved it there! They have really cool exhibits, and the staff is really nice. The exhibits are clean and orderly, not dusty and dirty. They cover a wide variety of topics, such as dinosaurs, birds and minerals. The gift store was also very nice, and had very cool things. I am looking forward to the next time I go... More

The museum was on the small side, but with great artifacts. Definitely worth a visit. The museum age is showing in some of the displays and some of the décor, but it does not take away from the content. The WWII D-Day display/collect was simply excellent. Fantastic items nicely and expertly displayed and detailed. Especially like the tie in to... More

The exhibits were good and the staff helpful. I'd definitely go back next time they get a new exhibit.

Forget about trying to describe. Just go there ! Phenominal. I have no photos to post because they are not allowed in the museum on account of fine art displays. This museum upstaged our original reason for going to Scranton. We'll be back to spend more time here.

The Everhart has great exhibits and galas. This is a top notch museum! I once saw a lego exhibit (Nathan Sawaya) and was blown away by #1 someone coming to Scranton to set up such an elaborate exhibit and #2 the talent. Thank you everyone!

Musty old building with musty old rooms and musty old personnel. Charming location on park should be turned into a park view restaurant and terrace with popular traveling exhibits.

I live in Scranton and have visited the Everhart many times over the years. It's a small museum but has a nice gallery as well as special exhibits. There is also an exibit of birds and native wildlife which is probably what brought us back often when my children were younger. It's located in Nay Aug park which is a... More

A smaller museum but with an outstanding bird collection! The main displays on the second floor change frequently and are usually quite interesting. A nice place to take a break and enjoy some well done displays.
