Learning about Kodak and its founder

The house was very interesting because Eastman was a pedant. The documentary upstairs gave you the overview you needed to gain an understanding of Eastman as a man and businessman

I've been here 3 times now and each time there is something new. It is a beautiful home and shows about the interesting life of a man who so influenced our world. It is worth the visit.

A historical treasure. An insight of the man that started Kodak and contributed much to many of the foundations in Rochester. A good view of the history of photography not only in Rochester but the

Mr. Eastman was a generous man and a great inventor. This house provides perspective into both his life and technical legacy.

Definitely take all tours available! House, garden & museum exhibit tours were fantastic- extremely informative and detailed beyond what you'd be able to notice on your own. The cameras and history of photographs on display are very interesting. My husband is the photographer between the two of us and he loved this museum so much that we went back for... More

This facility is George Eastman's home and appended is a film theatre, museum, Eastman's garden, and gift shop. Eastman is the founder of the Kodak corporation and at one time was the 6th richest man in America ... this home is his story. (Tip: on the second floor of the house, in the rear corner is a continuously playing PBS... More

They host film festivals and series of films around various themes. The... More

I was not interested in touring this place as it just looked like any other mansion, but once inside, it held a fascinating history. George Eastman was quite a person as you will find. The grounds are nicely groomed and the house itself is very tasteful, if a bit overdone in some instances. Nevertheless, it is a real must-see in... More

What an interesting person, and a home to go with an eccentric individual. Both the home and estate is worth a visit. Tour guides are well informed and very accommodating.

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
