For any Allman Brothers Band fans this is a must. They supply walk through notes for all the exhibits at the museum and also a plan of Rose Hill Cemetery were Duane Allman and Berry Oakley are buried as well as the grave of Elizabeth Reed who was inspiration for Berry's song. Bothe Museum and Cemetery are very easy to... More

You have for to visit The Big House if you're a true fan. It's like going back in time when your standing in Duane Allman's bedroom or gazing into the closet of Berry Oakley's daughter. The place is full of memorabilia that you will spend hours studying. Everyone that works there will gladly speak about anything you want to know.... More

If you're a fan of the Allman Brothers, you can't miss this attraction. I highly recommend going to one of the local concert venues, bring a sack lunch and sit on the lawn and enjoy. The memorabilia is amazing, with everything from guitars to guides that show the history of the Allman Brothers.

This museum was amazing, I loved everything about it! I felt like I was stepping on hallowed ground from the moment I stepped out of the vehicle. All the staff there were so friendly and knowledgeable, especially a man named (of all things) "Greg" who took his time to talk w/us, and took us though some of the rooms. I... More

I wanted to visit the Big House since long time and finally had the chance to do it. The exhibition has an unbelievable amount of memorabilia from The Allman Brothers Band as well as all the side projects (e.g. Gov't Mule) and guides you through the history of an undoubtedly legendary musicianship into the place itself where most of this...

I visited the Big House back in September. Wow. Seeing the spot where some big hits were written is pretty cool. Plus outside of the display cases filled with great Allman Brothers history, much of the house feels like it could still be lived in. My favorite room was the listening room complete with a record player and floor couch.... More

I aI am not from Macon. Moved here in 1980. I have lived in Atlanta, Virginia and Florida. I started playing music (saxophone) in 1956 and have played in many bands and played many different venues over the years. Oddly enough I had never heard about the Allman Brothers or their music until I moved to Macon so it has... More
