Impressive collection. So much memorabilia. So fun to hear hear the music & see the original, handwritten lyrics & all the receipts for the logistics of touring. The clothes, the instruments...Loved the house as well.

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.
