This is a very fun stop. Unexpectedly good experience. The guy that put this together is a big fan, did a great job collecting/preserving band stuff, and did an exceptional job remodeling the house. This is clearly a labor of love, not some tourist ripoff attraction

This is our 2nd time here and I am almost ready to move to Macon to volunteer at the Big House. If you are any sort of ABB fan, this is a must see. Not only is the museum a tribute to the GREATEST rock band in history, the house itself is lovely. As the house is in historic Macon,... More

This is a great place to go. The history of the allman brothers is intersting. There is music and videos throughout the house. The house itself is awesome. I was amazed at all there was in the house. Put together so well. Can't wait to go again because there was so much to see. Staff was very friendly and informative.

A fascinating look into the history of this band. A beautiful house, great displays and an informative cashier. It took us 2 trips around the block to find the entrance off of Vineville Ave. Just look for the gated entrance just past the house.

Even if you are not an Allman Brothers Band fan, you will still love wandering around the house where the band members, their families and friends lived in the early 70's. There is so much memorabilia here, including Gregg and Cher's pool table while they were married back in the 70's, handwritten lyrics to "Blue Sky" by founding guitarist Dickey... More

We made a day trip of this. Our drive was about 3.5 hours from Alabama to Macon, and we went solely for the purpose of visiting this museum. My DH is a musician, and this was somewhere he had been wanting to visit for a long time. Duane Allman's music is greatly admired by my husband. This museum did not... More

My husband and I hit the road from Wisconsin in our car instead of flying for our spring trip (we took a very happy dog with us, too). We decided to see the sites through Tennessee, North and South Carolina and went through Georgia on the way back. Having seen the Allman Brothers Band many times through the years (and... More

Didn't know what to expect as am not too familiar with their music. However, the Big House has been cleverly and lovingly put together and made me want to find out more about the band and their music. Well worth a trip whether you're a fan or not.

This was a nice tribute to the Allman Brothers Band. Lots of memorabilia to look at and it brought back memories of my teenage years. As we were walking through I couldn't help but think that back in the '70's there was no way that house would have been so clean or smelled so good. Imagine what a house full... More

This was a very enjoyable tour. I highly recommend visiting the Big House museum for any Allman Brothers fans. We saw some interesting memorabilia. I like how easy it is to tour on your own with the hand-out provided. This is a beautiful house and the grounds are lovely, also there are lots of photo opportunities.
