Director's Welcome

Welcome to EastmanHouse.org

George Eastman House Director: Dr. Anthony Bannon

George Eastman House may have only one address, but it is many destinations. Welcome to all of them! I hope you will use this website to investigate the Museum’s many offerings.

As the world’s preeminent museum of photography, Eastman House cares for and interprets hundreds of thousands of photographs encompassing the full history of this medium. We are constantly working to increase online accessibility to our collections through this website.

Eastman House is also one of the oldest film archives in the United States and is now considered to be among the top cinematic collections worldwide. Our motion picture archives hold more than 25,000 film titles produced between 1894 and the present. Be sure to use this website to check our schedule of motion picture screenings.

And be sure to explore the mansion that was once home to George Eastman, founder of the Eastman Kodak Company. The house and its exquisite gardens have been restored and offer visitors access to what was once a privileged view.

As you navigate more deeply into this web site you may notice that we expend a lot of energy in the effort to share our accumulated expertise in the management and care of collections. Three graduate level programs for the training of professionals in the care of photographs and motion pictures exemplify our commitment to propagate all that we have learned in our 50 years of custodianship.

I invite you to join us in caring for the irreplaceable objects of the motion picture and photography—by becoming a member of George Eastman House.
