If you love photography, or the history of early 20th century business in America, you need to learn about Eastman and his company. A poignant story about sucess and mortality, both human and commercial.

We lucked out and arrived early enough to experience a guided tour of the mansion, followed by a guided tour of the gardens, followed by a short history tour. Easily spent four hours here and found the mansion and the galleries very interesting.
