Eastman Museum has been on our must-do list for some time. Glad we finally took the time and checked it out. We enjoyed the history, the displays and the grounds. Everyone should visit at least once a year. We'll be back soon.

Spectacular architecture, photos since the daguerreotype. Film classics and special exhibits, not to mention a beautiful grounds and summer concert series all make the Eastman house an annual trip for me.

We had a tour of the Eastman Museum which I recommend. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had lots of interesting tidbits about the museum and of Eastman himself. I was a bit disappointed in the gardens.

Stopped by as a side trip on vacation. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Museum was nice and well kept. We both thought the art work was a bit too much like what we have many other places. Worth a visit. But manage your expectations.
