The George Eastman House is lovely, a true window into a gilded age of prosperity and luxurious living. The Museum is fascinating with ever changing exhibits and the standard history of photography too. The Dryden Theater on the grounds shows an endless array of classic films, obscure treasures and even, this May, a first ever Nitrate Film Festival. A must... More

It is a grand mansion that is worth visiting. The garden is well maintained, though we didn't really explore it because of the heavy rain. Lots of details in the architecture that we no longer see at this modern age.

Spent a day here not long ago while touring the city. Not much to do in Rochester so this seemed like a good way to spend the day.. Pretty disappointing

Being an amateur photographer this place was on my list of things to see in Rochester - and I'm glad I did. While the Eastman House is both an international museum of photography as well as what was George Eastman's home - I found the home tour the most fascinating portion of my visit. Audio tours - accessible by dialing... More

What a beautiful property. The house and grounds have been micely preserved and more than adequately showcase the residence of one of this country's prominent inventors, supporters and philanthropists. The location offers docent guided or self guided tours. Lots of memorabilia and insight into the man, George Eastman, and his life. As a life-long musician, I was especially interested in... More

A wonderful venue on its own, but check for the scheduled guided tours to make it even better. Also check for the evening concert schedule in the garden. Sunday's often offer a chance to hear the massive organ being played. A little planning can put your visit over the top! (But not on Monday - it's closed.)

There are several photographic exhibits, all of which were enjoyable. The house and grounds are beautiful, elegant, and inviting. We did self-guided tours and almost felt as if we were in our own home. There's even a sitting room upstairs where you can lounge on the sofa and read more about the history of Mr. Eastman and his home. The... More

The George Eastman House is wonderful. The tour of the grounds was excellent - led by a friendly and knowledgeable docent. The landscaping if gorgeous. The house itself is a gem. The collections highlight the history of photography and are very informative and imaginative. Nice bookstore and cafe.

The house is beautiful and the grounds (gardens) were spectacular! The history is wonderful. I took my parents who were visiting from out of town. They have a nice cafe to get a coffee and some snacks. I would recommend seeing this house and reading all the history for anyone visiting Rochester or if you live here!

Attended a Garden Wedding from out of state at the side entrance to the Eastman House. It was a small garden (mainly green hedges and slate walkways. No flowers to speak of. Approx 8-10 rows of chairs were assembled in the garden and the sun was extremely hot (no shade anywhere). No one except the wedding party was allowed inside... More
