I thoroughly enjoyed the garden tour, the docent was quite knowledgeable and took the time to answer all questions. We toured the house on our own, using the cell phone tour. It was simple to use and well planned. The cafe was excellent. I learned a lot about life in earlier times.

George Eastman House is not only a beautiful Mansion to tour, the Gardens are magnificent and the ever changing exhibits are always interesting and educational. I highly recommend a visit. They host great parties too.

One of the world's visionary titans ..but it also stands as a reminder that even the great can fall..doomed by digital Kodak is certainly a shell of its past glory.. as a history nerd, if your local give this titan a full days attention. You might just find out what made great men dream grand things

My husband has a passion for photography, and we both love historic houses so the George Eastman House was a must for us on our vacation last May. The museum does a great job exhibiting the history of photography, as well as photography as art. I loved touring the house--I wish that we could have made it in time for... More

This home was built by the man who created Kodak, a name he created. This museum is a perfect balance of the history of Kodak and the history of George Eastman. We came away with a sense of both the man and his creation. Make this your priority if you are interested in photography,architecture and horticulture. The gardens are incredible.

The mansion / house was very nice and the Docent was extremely knowledgeable and made for pleasant and informative tour. The photography museum could use a bit more work to be more informative.

For photography buffs there is an exhibit of the history of the development of cameras from early gigantic ones to present day along with examples of the way in which photography changed using these cameras. The docent in the gallery where the cameras and photographs are displayed must be... More

This was truly an impressive museum. The evolution of photography and film is showcased in an engaging format. The guided tour of George Eastman's mansion was entertaining and the estate/museum has been beautifully restored. Don't miss this museum if you're in Rochester.
