The mission of the George Eastman Museum, as an educational institution, has three interrelated goals:

  • Provide leadership in the fields of photography and cinema;
  • Preserve and develop our world-class collections related to photography and cinema, as well as George Eastman’s estate, a National Historic Landmark; and
  • Serve our communities, in Greater Rochester and elsewhere.
