The Eastman House is a "must see" if you're in the Rochester area. We took a grounds tour and learned a lot about the area and property. The interior is well preserved and the exhibits interesting. make sure you watch the video on the restoration of the organ - fascinating!

Nice walk through of a stately mansion. Tours are self guided which is nice, allowing you to take as much or little time as you would like.

The house and the museum exhibits are so informative. Special exhibits in particular that cover items not usually seen are remarkable.

I recently toured the George Eastman House and am glad I did! The house is magnificent, and the art galleries/museums are not to be missed. The entry fee is fourteen dollars($1.00 discount for AAA members) and well worth every penny. The woman at the ticket counter was very friendly. She actually took the time to go through the map of...

We took the docent tour which included the extensive gardens. Not to be missed. The history of the house is amazing, and the collections warrant a slow and leisurely visit. Highly recommended

This "museum" told the history of Eastman, which we were not aware. It was very interesting. Also there were a couple of exhibits in the new section which were also interesting. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and appeared to be passionate about the subjects. The house is well-mantained and offered a clear "picture" of the period in which Eastman prevailed.

Even if there were no exhibits or galleries, the George Eastman House would stand alone as a gorgeous house tour about an interesting man. The exhibits were beautifully displayed, and thoughtfully laid-out. And exploring the history of photography alone could eat up hours of time. The gardens invite you to stroll and relax on a tour or all by yourself.... More

Nice exhibit showing the history of film and photography in America. House is an interesting example of its time. Recommend if you have a bit of time in Rochester.
