This is the place to go to learn about one of the most interesting and influential people in the Rochester history. I always take guests to the house and often suggest taking in some of the many events. A must see for newcomers and visitors. We are fortunate that this gem is available.

Tours of the founder of Eastman Kodak's home are daily. George Eastman's home and garden are incredible. There are hands on displays and always some sort of special photography display. Guides are informative and ready to take any question. There's a cafe, gift shop and places to simply sit to absorb the beauty. A great stop for photographers or folks... More

A lovely well-maintained home and photography museum with something of interest for everyone. Take the extra time to view the three films which are located on the second floor and the gardens outside. Not the best place for small children although they do have a well thought out discovery room for kids ages 8 and up.

I was touring the George Eastman house recently with a group of 50, and it was an exciting day since Michael Douglas was going to be honored later that evening with an award. George Eastman's mansion was spectacular and the history of his life was impressive.

This is a very interesting place to visit. Be sure to take the house tour. My only wish is that it had more of an exhibition on the history of photography equipment, the Kodak factory, etc. What they do have is great...just wish there was more.

The mansion is meticulously restored to its stately grandeur. Wandering through, one can imagine what it must have been like to be part of Rochester's elite. Placards share information about the home and gardens and there is much to absorb about George Eastman's life, times and glorious involvement and concern for the people of Rochester, NY. The attached Dryden theater... More

Eastman house has a great photography and history of cameras museum. The photography exhibits change every so many months. The Dryden theater has great old cinema with tickets $8 for a student. The historic Eastman house is also nice to tour and in warmer weather the small outdoor gardens are really nice. The restaurant has decent cafe options of soup... More
