Founded in 1908, the Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art engages and inspires visitors through a variety of exhibitions, educational programs, and events for people of all ages and backgrounds throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. From its foundational taxidermy collection, fossil gallery, and rocks and minerals displays, to world-class art produced regionally, nationally, and internationally, to cultural artifacts from peoples around the world throughout time, the Everhart catalogs, preserves, and shares histories near and far to facilitate a deeper connection between people and the world around them.
The Everhart features regularly-changing special exhibitions both curated from the Museum’s extensive collections and brought in from around the country, and frequently updates its permanent galleries, meaning there is always something new to see.
If you want to enjoy some of what the Museum has to offer remotely, we offer a variety of virtual exhibitions!

Visitors may use the free three hour parking readily available in the Nay Aug Park lots adjacent to the Everhart grounds, accessible by taking the first left past the Museum when entering the Park via Mulberry Street.
