Activities and Online Resources

Welcome to our museum resource guide.

The Everhart joins museums around the world that now sit empty. We are adapting to social distancing and trying to broaden our definition of engagement. Explore our catalogue of online resources of museum lessons, inspiration boards, staff playlists, interactive experiences, and more. We will be adding content regularly and including links to content from other museums. We are in this together! Let us know what you’d like to see by sending an email to
