The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House reviews
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 »
For a music lover, this place is a treasure. I love tracing the history of music in the South and this is a hotspot. 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.
