Great place to learn about and see beautiful examples of photography. Touring through George Eastman's home helps add to the experience.

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.

This is a premiere photo, film, and camera museum. The Dryden theatre inside the house shows older movies on Wednesday evenings. Emphasis on Kodak products. Nice tour opportunity

The Eastman House contains a photography museum, a film theater that shows a different movie 6 nights a week, a large well-maintained garden, and of course, the large home of the founder of Kodak, as well as a cafe and a museum store. At Christmas time there are gingerbread houses made by local children and adults. In the summer Garden Vibes offer pop music. Plan on spending at least 3 hours here.
