The house and story of the occupants is very interesting. I would have liked to see more photos and heard more stories of George Eastman’s business life (especially from the beginning of his career). It would be good to see the steps towards industrialization. He...More

The George Eastman museum is a must for anyone interested in photography or cameras. In addition, the George Eastman home is interesting and sports one of the largest organs in private possession in the world (more than six thousand pipes I think). A bit bizarre,...More

The home and grounds are beautiful. Take some time, particularly in spring, summer and fall, to walk outside. The museum when you first enter always has good collections that have a nice run. Take a tour with a docent so that you get the full...More

For the photo historian, photographer, enthusiast or gallery goer, the Eastman House is a wonderful mix of history and photo exhibitions. The Eastman mansion itself tells the story of George Eastman's life and continual changing of improvements in photographic technology.

This museum is truly unusual. It was the home of George Eastman, brilliant entrepreneur and founder of Eastman Kodak. The house (mansion truly), built somewhere between 1902 and 1905 is a fine example of its era, with manicured gardens, a majestic staircase, many of the...More

Exceptional exhibits about the development of photography, including many cameras with good descriptive information, plus a roomful of hands-on activities to better understand some of the concepts. Well-done restoration of the inside of the estate. The grounds were extensive but didn't seem very well-cared-for. Two...More
