They lived in the house a few years late 60’s early 70’s and wrote a lot of their famous songs there. Duane and Berry died in town while they were living here and buried at the local cemetery. Great stuff in the gift shop.

Not much to see. The best part was the person who was there to take your money. He provided a lot of information about the Allman Brothers.

This is a great "museum" of Allman Brothers stuff!! Each room in the house was filled with memorabilia from the Allman Brothers Band. It is a self-guided tour. You are given a paper when you pay admission. As you go from room to room, the paper has facts about the items on display. Definitely worth the $10 fee!!

Having been a fan of the Allman Brothers Band for the last 45 years, this was a "must-see" for me. We stopped by on a road trip north from Florida. It was fantastic! Music and memorabilia abounded...it was really great! I knew it was small as museums go, so I didn't expect to spend much time. But there was so... More

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
