So glad we made the time to walk through the George Eastman museum. While Kodak and Eastman may be an example of a business unwilling to adapt to the changing times and technology... The rich history of Kodak, the rise and fall of a photo...More

We never knew much about George Eastman until we visited this House and Museum. Make sure you take the guided tours because you learn so much about this amazing man and his home. A must see!

We're interested in film and photography and had always wanted to visit this museum. We were certainly not disappointed. Originally we had planned on staying a few hours, but ended up staying most of the day taking advantage of the tours (free with admission). Historically,...More

We had a great tour of George Eastman's house and learned so much about him and how philanthropic he was. We also learned about how he started his business and what Kodak really means.

The photo gallery was filled with some very thought provoking images. However, I found the house itself less interesting as there was very little information about George Eastman as a person. The gardens are currently being renovated so we could only see a small courtyard...More

The George Eastman Museum is much as you would expect it to be. A shrine to a man who enjoyed great wealth and willed a significant portion of that wealth to his own beatification. Very little is told about his rivals and others who contributed...More
