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.

This is a good place to get natural history of the area and it also has a nice art collection. It' has 3 stories of exhibits and a nice gift shop.

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.

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.

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.

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...
