George Eastman Museum - Review

Built in 1905 for George Eastman (who bequeathed it to the city of Rochester upon his death), chartered as a museum in 1947, this building is the world’s oldest photography museum (400,000 photographs), as well as one of the oldest film archives (28,000 titles).

As such, the museum is also famous for having pioneered film and photography preservation. It’s most famous exhibits include the Civil War photographs by Alexander Gardner, the Alden Scott Boyer collection, the Louis Walton Sipley collection, and the Gabriel Cromer collection. There is also an excellent exploration of the film and photography technology, with over 16000 historical artefacts. Those who visit the museum for research end up perusing the extensive library.

Additionally, the museum houses the furnishings, books, and decorative arts of George Eastman himself. The museum is also the location of the historic Dryden Theatre.

George Eastman Museum, Rochester Reviews

  • Enjoyed seeing the progressive thinking of such a great man, even if he was such a troubled soul. House and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Great care is taken to preserve the building and the furnishings. All the staff were extremely friendly, respectful and oh so helpful. All were willing to answer questions about the house. Everyone was so knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the formal tour. Would recommend to anyone interested in history or photography.

  • I've been here before, but never to the cafe and gift shop. Neither disappointed! The food was delicious and the staff was very nice and helpful! I will definitely go again. In response to your response. It was suppose to be 5 Star. I have corrected that. Thank you for bring that to my attention so I could reflect the wonderful establishment that you are.

  • I enjoy touring beautiful homes from bygone eras and I was impressed with the design and decor in this house. Quite beautiful and with some quirky aspects to keep it interesting. It's also interesting to note how differences in social mores and attitudes over time are reflected in the furnishings.

  • So you have to like museums. But if you like museums and looking at snapshots of history this place is amazing. The Eastman house is fully restored and can be toured as as a house again and it's beautiful with two pipe organs (and those organs have a lot of history themselves). Then attached to that is a film museum that walks through the history of photography, especially Mr. Eastman's work in bringing photography to the masses. Cameras, film, and recording our lives have become so important to day-to-day existence and we wouldn't have any of it if we hadn't figured out personal photography, and this place has that story.

  • This place is well kept and very nice. The admission price as fair, and the workers were nice. There were a lot of pictures and the house was amazing! Aside from the descriptions of the walls, there is also a audio tour that you can call and learn to!
