The Everhart is a small regional art museum BUT that does not mean it is not meaningful. It hits all the major areas of Art and Natural History, sure. But the true beauty lies in its Natural Landscapes of the Lackawanna Valley. The presentation space on the top floor is fantastic, providing natural breaks in exhibits and the museum collection.

Very small local museum. There is no major "wow factor" but it gives you something to do. I have to say I was more impressed with this museum 30 years ago (when I was a child). Admission is $7/adult which may be considered overpriced for the exhibits. I think it would be better if they had more local exhibits highlighting... More

Stopped in to see an exhibition on contemporary works made of books. I had not been to this museum in many, many years and have come to the conclusion that I missed a lot over time. The museum is small and two floors. Main floor houses gemstones, fossils, taxidermy birds and smaller animals as well as a wing of traditional... More

Freezing cold day and we were looking for something fun inside. This place gave us some beautiful art and cool exhibits. Kids were thrilled by the geodes, stegosaurus, and birds. Terrific for the 2 hours we were there. Nice little gift shop.

This small natural history, science and art museum makes the most of its resources to add value to the community. Recently, the museum collected art works made from books to present to the public as paper books are giving way to digital volumes. The event included artist who talked about their history with books an inspiration to create such wonderful... More

I have been to The Everhart Museum many times in my life. It is a wonderful museum especially for children. The exhibits are small enough to keep children interested. I feel it is a shame so many people who live in the area never visit this gem.

The Everhart Museum has been a tourist destination in the metro Scranton area for generations. I can remember going there 40 or 50 years ago as a small child and still remember the sense of wonder at looking at all the interesting things, especially the stuffed bird collection and the glowing rocks. After meeting the curator several years back my... More

This is a small local museum and is not worth the price that is charged. One visit with the grand kids was enough, I won't need to return. Highlight for us was the stuffed birds section.
