Loved every minute of this tour. Being long-time fans, my husband and I really appreciated the detail and work put into this museum. It was easy to find, and restored beautifully. The grounds were very nice and staff just as nice and helpful during our entire day.

Drove from Atlanta to see Greg Allman play in Macon at the Grand Opera house. Spent the night and the next day went to Museum. It was a great side trip. Lots of memorabilia to see. My favorite was the box of vintage hotel keys they neglected to return. I can only imagine the many different girls and parties that... More

We spent an afternoon at the Allman Brothers Band Museum, with the sounds of the band playing throughout, immersed in the memorabilia. Made us feel quite young again. Photos, posters, contracts, clothes, music equipment - it's all on display. There's even a big box of unreturned hotel room keys. It really gives you a feel of what the band was... More

I've been here about 6 times and plan on going again. A must see for any Allman Brothers fan or music fan in general. The staff are always cool to talk with and ready to answer any questions you have. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

I visited the Big House yesterday and had a fantastic time, from the time I was greeted at the door until the time I drove out (for you Allman fans there is an arrowed sign in the parking lot saying "One Way Out", too cool IMO. There is no way I can list all of the important rock history contained... More

I accompanied my Allman Brothers fanatic spouse to this museum, even though I am not particularly a big fan but I thought it might be interesting. First of all, the museum is closed on Mondays but thankfully they let us in anyway since we were visiting from out of town -- so already I am happy. Then when we got... More

Controlled climate so good for any season. The house is beautiful and takes you into the late 1960's and early 70's era. The decor and memorabilia will leave you in awe. I live one town away and visit every chance I get if only to go into gift shop.

I love rock n roll and vintage items from a simpler time. This place is chock full of history and PLENTY of cool items to look at. You definitely need to go more than once to take it all in. Great way to spend a few hours.
