I have been to several places like this and to call it a museum is like calling the Pope a preacher. The history and layout was great but what really made the place come alive was the people working there. Everyone was great and took the time to spend talking to you about the band and everyday life.

I can't believe how AMAZING this place is!! I was expecting some cool stuff but I had no idea how extensive the collection is!! It seems as though the band had a historian from day one. I've never seen such a complete history of any band. Knowing the history of The Big House and the role it played in the... More

This was even better than expected. A very well done museum with too much to see in one day. I plan to go back...and a bargain for 8 bucks. Knowledgable volunteer guides. It was part of my birthday present and it was fantastic.

Been going there prior to it officially opening and was always welcomed as were countless others. Since it officially opened as a museum it is my favorite one to go to. Have met and made so many friends there. Once you go, you will want to go back !!

If you are a baby boomer who grew up listening to classic rock bands from the 60s and 70s you will really like this place. It would have been a treat to walk through even if it were not connected to the Allman Brothers as it is a magnificent old southern house. But, its connection to a truly iconic band... More

As a big fan of The Allman Brothers Band this was a major reason for visiting Georgia and Macon. I was not disappointed - in fact i was knocked out by the sheer amount of things they have. As the place where the band lived and rehearsed in the 60's and 70's the house just oozes atmoshere. the dsipakys are... More

My 55 year old husband has always wanted to visit "The Big House". He grew up loving the Allman Brothers and recently read Greg Allman's book. This museum is very well done and I was not prepared to find it as interesting as I did. The memorabilia is vast, music is good, and the house itself is worth visiting. The... More

We're not exactly huge ABB fans but do appreciate their music. We had travelled to Macon twice before but weren't able to make it to the Big House until now. The museum is well laid out and they provide you with written information to give more details about the memorabilia. Unfortunately, we ended up with a flat tire in the... More

We took a day trip to Macon, and our first stop was the Big House! Well, we actually drove right by it initially - the mansion is located on a residential street, and there are no signs or billboards advertising it (the gate to the parking area has a sign, but when they're open for business, you don't see it!)...
