  • It's on the smaller side, but don't let that deter you. They get some really interesting and well-curated exhibits. Plus, you can't beat admission at $7 per person.
  • A wonderful addition to the Scranton area. The past few exhibits have been well-curated and interesting. I have been enjoying the "Everhart after dark" events as well as the summer events out on the lawn. Keep it up!
  • I took all four of my kids and they enjoyed seeing all of the exhibits. It was great to be able to explore pieces from our area along with pieces from all over the world. The animal exhibits, rock exhibit, and dinosaur exhibit were favorites.
  • Great place for a rainy day, all types of exhibits!
  • Love taking the children here. New experience every time we go. Like that things change every 6 months to give it a fresh experience to the little ones as well as for me too
