Familes in the Discovery Room at George Eastman House.

  • Please feel free to join any of the day’s public house tours and gallery talks. Our admission staff would be delighted to direct you.
  • We hope you will enjoy visiting our current photography exhibits. These exhibitions give us the opportunity to highlight some of the greatest hits of the Museum’s photography, technology, and motion pictures collections.
  • Don’t forget about the Discovery Room on the second floor of the house! It’s open to the public beginning at 1 p.m. each day. The kids (and parents too!) will enjoy creating their own sunprints and visiting other hands-on stations throughout the room.
  • Our Museum Store offers a variety of Children’s books and toys. Judy or Karen would be happy to show you what’s available.
  • No visit would be complete without a visit to our Café. Mary invites you to check out the day’s selections of soups, salads, sandwiches, and, of course, delicious cakes, cookies, and other pastries.

Note: Baby-changing stations are located in each of the restrooms.
