My husband & I visited the Big House & were so glad we did!! We were greeted by Christina at the front desk. She was very friendly & seemed genuinely happy to see us. She gave us so much information..... more »
Amazing place. Don't miss it. Even if you think you don't care stop any way because you will enjoy the history of this self made band that started the southern rock culture.
We took my father-in-law here and he loved it. I'm not a big fan of the Allman Brothers, but the house has been very nicely converted to a museum and is extremely well done. Even if you're not a fan of the Allman Brothers, this is definitely a big part of Macon history and very interesting to walk through a house with a very rich and vibrant history.
