If you're a fan of the Allman Brothers, you can't miss this attraction. I highly recommend going to one of the local concert venues, bring a sack lunch and sit on the lawn and enjoy. The memorabilia is amazing, with everything from guitars to guides that show the history of the Allman Brothers.

This museum was amazing, I loved everything about it! I felt like I was stepping on hallowed ground from the moment I stepped out of the vehicle. All the staff there were so friendly and knowledgeable, especially a man named (of all things) "Greg" who took his time to talk w/us, and took us though some of the rooms. I... More

I wanted to visit the Big House since long time and finally had the chance to do it. The exhibition has an unbelievable amount of memorabilia from The Allman Brothers Band as well as all the side projects (e.g. Gov't Mule) and guides you through the history of an undoubtedly legendary musicianship into the place itself where most of this...

I visited the Big House back in September. Wow. Seeing the spot where some big hits were written is pretty cool. Plus outside of the display cases filled with great Allman Brothers history, much of the house feels like it could still be lived in. My favorite room was the listening room complete with a record player and floor couch.... More

I aI am not from Macon. Moved here in 1980. I have lived in Atlanta, Virginia and Florida. I started playing music (saxophone) in 1956 and have played in many bands and played many different venues over the years. Oddly enough I had never heard about the Allman Brothers or their music until I moved to Macon so it has... More

You will not be disappointed in this museum. So many wonderful Allman Brothers relics that I was mesmerized. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly and the grounds and home very well kept. There is a nice gift shop and of course spent lots of money! Can't wait to return! Make this a must stop or even better like us..a... More

Coming back from Atlanta in the middle of October we decided to finally check out the Allman Brothers Band at the Big House in Macon, Ga. This memorial to the very early years of the band and its members is a must do for fans of Southern rock or just music fans in general. It struck a major chord with... More

We only had about an hour before The Big House closed for the day, but we decided to take in as much of it as we could in the time we had, and were so glad we did. The Allman Brothers Museum is beautifully put together with instruments, equipment, memorabilia, personal items, photography and paintings representing this amazing band and... More

This is the house where the band lived for several years in the early 70's. The rooms are intact as far as I can tell and decorated like someone still lives there amongst the showcases, with band member's cloths in the closets, etc. If only these walls could talk.....
