My husband has loved the Allman Brothers longer than we've been married (30 yrs). So why wouldn't we visit here? Well worth the $10 admission as our host/docent/museum cashier was so knowledgeable we could have talked with him all day! Walking around this mansion was interesting in and of itself but all the memorabilia was extraordinary. Each room had so... More

What a wonderful idea turning the original home of the Allman Brothers into a museum and filling it with lots of memorabilia. If your vacation or get away brings you to Macon, Georgia this is a "must see" attraction.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Allman Brothers Museum. To make the most of your trip, read up on Duane Allman and Berry Oakley prior to visiting the museum / Macon. Unfortunately the audio tour wasn't functioning during our trip, but we were informed that it will be up and running soon. The museum has lots of memorabilia from... More

Why anyone would give this less than 5 stars is beyond me. If you don't "get it" about the Allman movement, you probably should not go. This was a movement that encompassed millions of followers. This band became the first to popularize blues for the next three decades and there is no sign of it stopping. I lived in GA... More

Back in their formative years, from 1970-1973, the Allman Brothers Band members and their significant others lived in this big old house in Macon, the city where they got started and became famous as a band. A number of their best-known songs were written there. This "big house" has been lovingly restored and is filled with fascinating displays of Allman... More

The house is a large home built in the 1920's. I would guess, filled with memorabilia from the 1960's. For Allman Brothers fans, it would have considerable appeal. For others who do not know a great deal about them, it may not be of much interest. I could not get enthused. It takes a couple of hours to view it... More

Take a step back in time and discover the world’s best rock and roll band, The Allman Brothers! From the moment you walk in this beautiful southern home, you will be mesmerized by the many pieces of memorabilia displayed! Your tour starts in the parlor through the Fillmore East Room (my favorite) all the way through the Candace Oakley and... More

For all children of the 70s this is a pilgrimmage worth doing. The house is the one on the cover of the Brothers and Sisters album. Gold records and all kind of memorabilia there. If you don't remember them not worth going.

A must do for any Allman Brothers fan. Photos are allowed which is nice.Volunteers are very helpful with general knowledge.If you are a fanatical fan like me you probably already know more about the band than they do. Guides and maps of ABB landmarks for free. Interesting display of receipts and contracts from the early days. Was stuff really that... More
