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

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.
