We believe in the power of the Everhart Museum to spark the imagination, challenge thought and provide enjoyment. Through our collections, exhibits and programs, we strive to integrate natural history, science and art into the lives of people.
The Everhart was founded in 1908 by Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart, one of Scranton’s most devoted philanthropists and an ornithological enthusiast. For over a century, the museum has educated visitors of all ages in the fields of science, history, culture and art. The Everhart houses humanities and fine art collections, as well natural history collections that include fossils, birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, minerals, insects, shells and herbaria. With over a dozen galleries, there is plenty to explore.
The changing exhibition schedule features a range of visual artworks, historical and contemporary, as well as traveling shows on loan from other institutions. Multi-generational programming is offered that focuses on the collections and special exhibitions year-round.
