Visitors and native Rochesterians should take the time to visit and to learn about the dawning of the photographic age. House and grounds are beautifully maintained. Experience is enhanced when there is a special event in progress.

This is actually three museums in one: a world class photography museum and research center, the house and grounds of an industrialist, and a film collection and theater. The photographic museum is great. They display some cameras and technology, but mostly display photographs, some from their permanent collection and some on a rotating basis. The shows can range from really... More

This is a beautiful home with many interesting rooms and details. We have visited several times and learn something new each time. You'll learn about George Eastman and his impact on Rochester. Definitely worthwhile. The gardens are beautiful too!

When in Rochester, The George Eastman House is a must-see. So much of what is wonderful about Rochester is thanks to George Eastman, the founder of Eastman Kodak Company. The home is also impressive, with much of the original furniture recovered from around the country, but there is much to learn about the development of dry-plate processing, the collection of...

We visited the Eastman House in March 2014. I was disappointed in the museum area as I thought there would be more about Kodak and the film process. The camera exhibit, which will be done soon, was excellent. The Amish picture exhibit was ok but would be better if there were descriptions of the pictures and not just a cell... More
