Located in a wonderful Rochester neighborhood. Two special exhibits were up. Halaban was excellent. Levinthal was interesting in concept.

George Eastman I thought I knew his history, I was wrong. If you are a history buff you will enjoy your time at this Museum. Give yourself plenty of time to walk and read the exhibits.

I spent over three hours in George Eastman's home and now museum of photography. Both parts of the visit I consider to be time well spent. A must see for any visitor to Rochester, New York.

George Eastman was a fascinating person and this museum offers a glimpse into his home and lifestyle plus a modern wing with wonderful photography. A theater as well! Go!

I was expecting much more out of this museum. There was not nearly enough about the history of photography or the manufacturing history in Rochester. It was mostly about the house, which was a standard mansion. A few of the photography exhibits were interesting but...More
