Facility:The Big House - The Allman Brothers Band Museum
Description:Here’s where you’ll find all the posters, photos and memorabilia, both rare and familiar. A vast archive of audio recordings and film footage. All of it right here at the Big House, and just like the music and the band it birthed, all of it meant to be experienced. Not just read about. Not even just listened to. Experienced.

Sit on the front porch where Duane Allman and Berry Oakley whiled away all those hot Southern afternoons, making music and making friends and making history. Walk up the steps to that porch and you can almost hear the footsteps of Jaimoe or Butch Trucks or Chuck Leavell walking up beside you. Those bells you hear in the distance of a Sunday morning? They’ll ring forever in Dickey Betts’“Blue Sky.” Find out what it was about the place that made it magic, that made it special, that made it home—so much so that when Gregg Allman wrote, “Please Call Home,” this is the home he was writing about. This is where the journey began, and for those of us who took that journey with them, this one little stretch of Vineville Avenue in Macon, Georgia is the road that goes on forever.
