We only had about an hour before The Big House closed for the day, but we decided to take in as much of it as we could in the time we had, and were so glad we did. The Allman Brothers Museum is beautifully put together with instruments, equipment, memorabilia, personal items, photography and paintings representing this amazing band and... More

This is the house where the band lived for several years in the early 70's. The rooms are intact as far as I can tell and decorated like someone still lives there amongst the showcases, with band member's cloths in the closets, etc. If only these walls could talk.....

Love this wonderful historical house that ABB (Allman Brothers Band) lived in . It has original written songs, apparel, posters and musical instruments. You can get your favorite T Shirt here at a good price. So glad we made a stop here beware its only open Thursday - Sunday11:00am - 6:00pm

I have been to several places like this and to call it a museum is like calling the Pope a preacher. The history and layout was great but what really made the place come alive was the people working there. Everyone was great and took the time to spend talking to you about the band and everyday life.

I can't believe how AMAZING this place is!! I was expecting some cool stuff but I had no idea how extensive the collection is!! It seems as though the band had a historian from day one. I've never seen such a complete history of any band. Knowing the history of The Big House and the role it played in the... More

This was even better than expected. A very well done museum with too much to see in one day. I plan to go back...and a bargain for 8 bucks. Knowledgable volunteer guides. It was part of my birthday present and it was fantastic.

Been going there prior to it officially opening and was always welcomed as were countless others. Since it officially opened as a museum it is my favorite one to go to. Have met and made so many friends there. Once you go, you will want to go back !!
