the home was interesting, the gardens lovely. Very typical of late 19th-early 20th century industrial magnate homes. Not too impressed with current photography exhibit, but did learn a lot about George Eastman.

You don't know Rochester until you have been through the George Eastman Museum and house. Make sure you stop and ask the people who work there for the intimate details. You will hear things that aren't highlighted on the otherwise informative and fascinating tour.

A fascinating glimpse of a complex and significant American genius. You don't have to have a background in photography to appreciate the man's contributions. He was also a major philanthropist and chief benefactor to establishing the Eastman School of Music.
