Great local museum. Great for kids.

Nice local museum. Takes about 1 hour. Kids would like it because they have a dinosaur skeleton, lots of birds and minerals. The building itself is grand.

We went to see the "To your health cocktail exhibit" and thought it was just great. The exhibit was just so interesting, we didn't want to leave. Spent some time wandering around the rest of the museum and had fun.

This is a quiet afternoon for an older crowd. My young son did not find it fun, and got a bit bored by the end of the experience. Great first date place.

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

This very sweet old (1908) museum is one of only a few in NEPA. Permanent galleries of taxidermy native birds, a dinosaur room with fossils, a rock & mineral room with native PA rocks featuring a black light which makes the rock light up and come alive (great for young and old kids!) and a folk art collection are found...

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!
