If you are headed down I-75 to Florida or up I-75 northbound, be sure to plan a stop at The Big House - located just blocks from the interstate at the Hardeman-Forsyth exit in Macon! You'll see instruments, sheet music, personal photographs, clothes and other belongings once held by members of the originators of the 1970's new sound dubbed "Southern Rock." A walk through the house includes the instrument room where the band practiced, Duane Allman's bedroom, Berry & Candace Oakley's "casbah" and the kitchen where Ramblin Man was written. When the band sang Please Call Home, they were talking about The Big House. Come see it for yourself and relive the music, the vibe and the love shared by Allman Brothers Band fans worldwide.

  • A simple yet wonderful little museum. They call it "The Big House". House is full of memorabilia and interesting displays. Loved looking at the old tickets and the cheap prices for concerts back...  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.
