On our recent road trip through Georgia, my daughter noticed we were going through Macon and found this great museum. We are all music lovers, and Allman brothers fans. The museum had so much music history and was displayed perfectly. They are very friendly and could answer any question. Highly recommend this as a stop on your way through Georgia.

I'm not a devoted fan but was interested in seeing the Big House. I don't feel the museum is for the average visitor. there are hundreds of photos without any captions and very little biographical info.

The Allman Brothers Band is part of my musical heritage. I'm glad I discovered this great museum of everything ABB, It's small, but located in the house the band occupied for a few years in the '70's. Every conceivable memorabilia, trinket, artifact, instrument of historical significance etc is housed here. The printed guide explains a lot of the significant pieces,... More

Hands-down, the best museum in town. Huge collection of memorabilia, beautifully curated and displayed in a house that is literally full of history. You never know who will drop by. Volunteer-run, it's well worth a few hours of your day.

This was where the band lived, and it is still full of their music.The upstairs sunroom looks like it is still 1975, and it is hippy-cool! Tons of the bands personal items and musical gear are to be seen in every room. A southern rock music must-see.

My destination was Macon, Georgia. Specifically, the “Big House”. This was the grand,Tudor-style house that the Allman Brothers lived in with their wives and little kids in the early 70s, at about the time they were just catching fire. It is now a free museum located in a very nice neighborhood of stately homes. The museum showcases furniture, photos, guitars,... More

If you are a fan of the Allman Brothers then you have to stop here. The history, the "relics", the information, the"vibe" are all great.

Displays on the lengthy career of the Allman Brothers Band - the same museum quality as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Cleveland). This house was home from 1971-73 and then some...a lot of other musicians stayed here on the couch. Upstairs bedrooms, other rooms filled with memorabilia. Parking on the grounds. Small gift shop.

If you are an Allman Bros. Band fan the Big House museum should be a bucket list item. There is just so much to see, instruments, posters, photos, clothing, bedrooms, practice room, listening room (The Casbah Lounge), really well done. Friendly, approachable staff / volunteers are more than happy to share their plentiful insights into many of the items displayed.... More
