We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon. As for now, our on-site group tours are temporarily suspended.
We will continue to offer a robust schedule of online activities and programming for the convenience and consideration of those who can’t make it to the Museum right away, and for those who want to continue their engagement with the Museum.
Please check back often for updates on future group tour availability.
Virtual School Tours
Virtual School Tours bring the Everhart Museum into your virtual space with live discussions, guided object exploration and museum science demonstrations.

Symbols of America
Grades: 5th-8th, 9th-12th
Why have certain images or symbols become associated with American Culture? Inspired by the current exhibit “Eyes on America”, museum educators will guide students through a 40-minute interactive discussion about symbolism in art and how certain images impact our views and opinions of what it means to be American. Students will distinguish different ways art is used to represent, establish, reinforce, and reflect group identity.
Visual Literacy & Object-Based Learning Workshops
Completely custom to each individual classroom situation, our museum team will work with educators to select themes and topics to support the classroom curriculum. Museum educators will use experiential learning techniques to engage students in live discussions about art and objects from around the world.
Examples of topics that can be explored:
Nature and Art, the NEPA Industrial Landscape, Exploring Ancient Egypt, Women in Art and more.
