Museum was closed (unannounced) - Very difficult to find. I went in the exit (wrong way) and was able to walk around outside. Looked really cool, too bad we couldn't go inside

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.
