George Eastman House
The George Eastman House is a museum dedicated to the history of photography and film. Attached to the museum is George Eastman’s mansion with several rooms open to the public.
Guided tours are available for both the mansion and the museum.
While the adults in our group appreciated the camera and photo galleries in the museum, our kids (4 and 1) got bored quickly.
This is probably not the place for families with toddlers and young children to visit as the rooms are roped off and camera collections are encased in glass.
This museum is geared more towards film and photography buffs and families with older children.
Rochester Museum & Science Center
The Rochester Museum & Science Center offers three floors of hands-on exhibits for kids.
It is a relatively small museum and science center compared to the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto.
The Rochester Museum & Science Center is part of the ASTC and members receive discounts on admission here.
I would recommend making a visit to the museum and science center if you have young children and a few hours to spare in the morning or afternoon. When we visited on Saturday morning, it wasn’t very busy and went through all the exhibits under 3 hours.
