Visitor Tips and News About Allman Brothers Band Museum
My husband is a fan of the Allman Brothers (I didn't know much about them) and when I found "The Big House" along our road trip route, we decided to stop and take a look. We had no idea what to expect, and it was fantastic!
The museum is in the big house where the band members lived, played, and wrote, and it's jam-packed full of memorabilia and artifacts. The audio tour does a great job explaining everything on display. The people that work there were the friendliest we met on our trip through the south. I learned so much about the band members in this museum and recommend it to everyone.[JMarie, 03/01/2011]
