Fun place to visit - no idea the mushrooms on the gate were for the Big House! I have passed them many time no knowing this! We enjoyed it - not so much for our senior as the stairs were just too big. We went as a family and it was fun to look at all the memorabilia! My husband... More

If you are a fan and appreciate their music this is a must see attraction for you. A former residence for several of the band members; it has been converted into a highly informative and entertaining museum for all to enjoy. It is well worth a visit if ever in the Macon area.

If your an Allman brothers fan this is Mecca. I go here anytime I'm near the big house. Many great exhibits to see and you can take pictures without flash. The fun starts when you see the gates. Nice gift shop too. Make sure to hit up H and H soul food for some fried chicken

This is the house where original Allman Brothers Band spend their high days and composed in it some of the most iconic songs. It is hard to describe what real fan of the band feels here. The first floor is full of instruments and memorable items. The second floor is like someone left the house and you find yourself sneaking... More

Kirk West and his collection of memorabilia is amazing. Spent a solid 30 minutes in each room reading, gazing, and dreaming about the days of old and what it would have been like. The collection takes you back to where it all began. Visited with my younger brother, who is the biggest fan I know!

I visited the museum about 3 or 4 years ago, and have been known to stop by the gift shop when I'm in town to see if there's anything new. It's a must-do for any Allman Brothers fan. And pay the extra for the headphone tour! It's fascinating that people got together and made this all happen. For years after... More

As a fan of The Allman Brothers I had high hopes for The Big House, all of which were met, and more. The staff and volunteers here are friendly and knowledgeable, at the same time, they let you take in the surroundings and vast collection of memorabilia on offer.

If you are a fan of The Allman Brothers Band then you will LOVE this place. A really behind the scenes glimpse into their history. For myself I loved just looking at the house itself with its unique features. Teens will get a kick out of seeing what used to be cool or as was said back in the day... More

I was pleasantly surprised by my visit here. There's a lot of memorabilia stored in this house along with interesting information about these musicians. I liked wandering through the rooms and looking at artifacts like concert posters, outfits the band mates performed in from the 70's, and of course, the guitars.
