My husband and I stopped here on our way from Minnesota to Florida as it was a cold and rainy day and I'm glad we did. The home is full of memorabilia. One of the volunteers said there were still boxes of stuff that need to be gone through. All of the volunteers were great. They'll tell you as much... More

A superb time was had by all in our party. And I do mean " party." A word to the wise; don't try to climb the fence around Duane's & B.O.'s tombstones at Rose Hill. It almost cost my buddy Gibbons his right hand. ---Yer pal Nerfy

This would only be worth the money if you are or were a fan of the Allman Brothers band. You will see a lot of memorabilia they have saved over the years and if you stop to speak to Greg, a friend of the band, you will learn a lot about this group

So much memorabilia - it is awesome to see all these things first hand!! We took our children (2 and 8) and even though they are too young to understand fully - they really enjoyed it and did much better than I expected. Definitely will be going back a few years down the road - it was an awesome experience... More

We try to find different things to do on Valentine's Day and my husband decided to take me to The Big House. Music is such a part of Macon. My cousin was in the Allman Brother's Band, so i got to see where he wrote songs that became very famous. It was a really nice day!

This is a must if you love rock and roll, especially the Allman Brothers. The parking is a little thin but the museum is great. The place is filled with memorabilia and one is able to gain a lot of insight into what was going with the Band in the early years. The staff is excellent and really know their... More

This is an excellent attraction. The museum is carefully laid out, done with such passion and respect for the band's heritage that expectations were met and then some. The amount of memorabilia, personal effects, story lines, etc. make this a must for any fan of the band and/or of that era of music. Highly worth it.

My brother is a big fan, me not so much. But, I did enjoy the tour through the Big House. It was very cool to see pictures of the band in the the house, right where we were standing. It is well kept up, and not expensive to visit. If you have any music lovers in your group, it is... More

If you are an Allman Brothers fan, and even if you're not familiar with them, this place is first class and worth a visit. Being a huge lifelong fan and having grown up nearby, I always tell people to go here. If not in the area or just passing through, make a special trip and check it out. The staff... More
