The Basics
Visitors to the Rochester, N.Y., estate can explore the mansion’s many exhibits on a self-guided tour or learn more about George Eastman’s life, work, and estate on a docent-led tour. Tours of the mansion, gallery, and gardens are offered at specific times daily and included in admission. Alternatively, audio and mobile tours—delivered via your cell phone—let you explore the museum and grounds at your own pace.
