Kind of pricey ($7 per person) for such a small museum. The taxidermied birds were interesting, as was the mineral room and the dinosaur room. The elevator wasn't working. The woman working upstairs was hovering nearby, but not talking to us. It was very awkward and uncomfortable, as though she thought we were going to damage or steal something. We... More

I went here for a date because it was cold outside and there was not much else to do that weekend. The pictures in the art gallery were kind of a joke... I could have painted some of them. If it weren't for the great company it would have been even worse.

I just love the Everhart... it's easy to visit... fun to walk thru, interesting exhibits & wonderful educational programs... what's not to like... it's like your own little museum on the back 40. Thanks to the marvelous staff who dedicate hours for the benefit of us...

This beautiful gem sits above the city of Scranton. The museum has the Everhart collection, which are materials amassed by the family, as well as many changing exhibits with a special focus on art from Pennsylvania (at least as I've noticed over the past several years). There is abundant parking and the views are beautiful (right next to Nay Aug... More

Although I now live in Colorado, I had been to the Everhart and Nay Aug's amusement park as a kid. My husband is a bird biologist, and we had a few hours to spare last week while visiting family, so I thought of the bird specimens on display at this museum. Everhart himself was a naturalist and bird lover. Although... More

Good preserved birds exhibit. Pedestrian art display. Better works seen in the past reportedly have been sold to float the place's bills. Sad commentary!

I like the Everhart museum because they are family oriented, they always have events going on, they feature art from local people as well as from children in our elementary schools. I remember one time years ago I had made a painting in 5th grade art class that my teacher fell in love with so much that she went out... More

A friend told me about the D-Day exhibit that was being featured in the museum and since my husband is very interested in WWII history, I suggested a Saturday afternoon visiting the exhibit and lunch. We were both impressed with the D-Day exhibit/collection.They also had a 1960's exhibit which featured things like the JFK assassination, etc. I think we paid... More

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
