The Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art is a non-profit art and natural history museum located in Nay Aug Park in Scranton, Pennsylvania, United States. It was founded in 1908 by Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart, a local medical doctor and skilled taxidermist. Many of the specimens in the museum's extensive ornithological collection came from Dr. Everhart's personal collection.

In addition to the zoological displays, the permanent collection includes works of visual art (many by Northeastern Pennsylvanian artists), ethnological artifacts, and fossils. The museum has an excellent permanent display of American folk art.

  • The art collection is terrific and the taxidermy & rock collections are amazing for a small town museum. This facility is well-worth a few hours of your time. Kids loved it, too.
  • Pretty up-to-date museum. They're always rotating the exhibits and having events. They could do more with publicity, for even though I live in town and am genuinely interested in their efforts, I don't know what they have going on most of the time, let alone for the general public.
