Expensive to see at $15.00 and we did not go in because of the high price. If you like the Allman Brothers it might be worth it. But we did not want to go in. Lower the price for people on a fixed income.

We were staying here for the week since we had to evacuate from Myrtle Beach for Hurricane Florence. It is too pricey for a family at $15 charge per person. Maybe $8 a person would be good.. We did not go thru the home.

I stayed at the 1842 Inn which was lovely and very close to the museum and other Macon sites. Staff so friendly and cones with breakfast.There are other inns in the area you could check out as well.
