George Eastman Museum#9 in Best Things To Do in The Finger Lakes
Located in Rochester, this facility – the world's oldest museum of photography and one of the oldest film archives – is housed within the former estate of George Eastman, a photography and film pioneer. The National Historic Landmark pays homage to the history of photography and motion picture film, offering both permanent and temporary exhibits, an extensive library and a 500-seat theater, which shows more than 300 films each year. Past exhibitions have covered the relationship between photography and our national parks and the history of space photography.
Recent visitors called this museum "a must for the photography enthusiast" and said that even if you're not interested in film and photography, the historic mansion and gorgeous gardens are worth a visit. Reviewers also highly recommended the on-site cafe for lunch.
The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission, which does not include film screenings, costs $15 for adults and $5 for students and kids ages 5 to 17. The Eastman Museum Café is open during regular museum hours and before evening film screenings. To learn more about upcoming exhibits, visit the museum's website.
