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.

If you are interested at all in music of the day or the Allman Brothers Band, this is a stop for you. If they can they be called docents, are very knowledgeable and helpful. The house itself is historic and lovely, the exhibits are artistic and full of color and info. Plans to return. It was neat to know that former President Carter was also a fan.
An amazing walk back in time to my high school days when the Allman Brothers were becoming well known. The "Big House" is where the band hung out in the early Macon days and several famous songs were written there. It was full of memorabilia in every room. It is a self-guided tour and can take as long as you like. Discounts for seniors. A must stop while in Macon. We were here for the cherry blossom festival. Also ear at the Rookery on Cherry Street or Fatty's pizza not far away.
