The Big House staff was not only very accommodating, but they were a blast to talk with! I enjoyed sharing stories with them. The museum is awesome, if you love the Allman Brothers, it is the place to go. From hand written lyrics to sitting in Duane's room. It was all amazing, and really fun. You can tell that the... More

The Big House. If you love the Allman brothers this is the place to go. From old pictures to classic guitars, all things Allman. The grounds are a great place to have outdoor gatherings.

This has been on my bucket list. I tried visiting a couple of years ago, but was disappointed to find it closed for the weekend. Tried again this year (even called ahead first), only to have the same thing happen. Thankfully I must have looked so disappointed that I was allowed quick access to the first floor and the gift...

I love Southern Rock and even saw Greg Allman at a grocery store in Roswell, GA when I was about 4! I remember his long blond hair and the fact that he was very "happy"! It was thus cool to see this place and all the memorabilia - songs written on paper, instruments, costumes, etc. Would definitely go if you... More

We were driving thru on a camping trip and found this museum by searching through trip advisor . We walked around the outside only as they are only open on certain days and times. We peered thru the windows and it looked like a great museum but sad we could not see more.
