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.

Local Macon book sayd they do tours. The tour is a legal size paper with one line for each place card - if you can find them. Boring place

Amazing collection of ABB memorabiiia. Friendly and very informative hosts. My wife and I spent over 2 hours enjoying the house and all its Rock n Roll history. We will return again and bring friends who grew up listening to the Allman Brothers.
