“Wonderful museum/mansion especially for photographers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I have visited several times and always enjoy new exhibits, gardens, occasional concerts (George Eastman loved his music,) the mansion is so beautifully restored, each visit I see something I had missed previously and the docents a wealth of knowledge - just ask and show interest! Love the gift shop for unique items as well.

“Nice place to spend Quite time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This house is very intresting to visit.
I love the staircase, and always enjoy
walking up and down it! The gardens
are beautiful in the spring and summer.
Many people have wedding pictures taken there.
You don't have to just like camera's to visit here,
there is something for all ages.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are a photo, or movie buff, you will just love the GEH. Most nights classic films are screened in the attached Dryden theatre. Their photo collection is second to none. The house itself gives you the aura of the great George Eastman. it's a top destination in the Rochester area.
