The Everhart Museum is reopening Saturday, September 5th with temporary hours.
Founded in 1908, the Everhart Museum is one of the oldest museums in Northeastern Pennsylvania and part of the early 20th-century regional museum movement. Monies and initial natural history collections were provided by Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart, a Scranton physician and Civil War veteran. Everhart conceived that the Museum would serve not only the immediate City of Scranton but the whole of Northeast Pennsylvania.
The Everhart Museum is one of the region’s leading resources for educational and cultural opportunities. With a multidisciplinary and diverse approach, the Everhart creates extraordinary experiences. Our programs stimulate creative expression and active engagement between art and science.Learn More
