Well, of course it's a shrine

It would take days to appreciate every item on display, and they say that is only a third of the collection. A remarkable achievement and a tribute to the handful of people who... read more

If you're not a fan, you probably don't need to see this. There's not a lot here to excite someone who's not into the band. However, if you are a fan, there a huge amount of memorabilia to see.

It would take days to appreciate every item on display, and they say that is only a third of the collection. A remarkable achievement and a tribute to the handful of people who weren't willing to let the music die in Macon.

Well worth the trip while travelling on I-75. Easy to get to. Walk down memory lane for baby boomers who remember the era of the Allman Brothers Band. Richard, the collection and merchandise director, was amazing to talk to and learn about ABB, Government Mule, Warren Haynes, Tedeschi Trucks Band and all members over the years. If you are looking... More

What an interesting and enjoyable museum! Driving down from Canada can be boring but this stop, conveniently just blocks from the I-75, made a great road trip moment. The volunteer staff are great (thanks Greg!) and knowledgeable. We so enjoyed this very personal look at the early days for this great southern band. The gift shop, staffed by a helpful... More

An absolute must-see for any Allman Brothers Band fan. A definite must-see for any southern rock fan. A must-see for an 70s rock fan. Greg (no, not that Gregg) walked around with me giving me added details and insights into the home and the collection. The whole staff just seemed to have a passion for the place and the band.

When we bought the GroupOn to visit we did not know what to expect. Now we have a place to take future guests to. Who knew we had a treasure like this so close by. A treasure chest of 1960-1970's rock history. I put this place at the top of the list for any visitor to Macon. A must see!

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

Whether or not you are an Allman Brothers fan or just a music fan this museum is top rate. If you are an Allman Brothers fan it is Hallowed grounds. Beautifully done, gives you a glimpse into a family of musicians where there is so much heart! This has been put together with so much love and care that it... More
