Finally…the wait is over…after two and a half years of renovation and restoration, the house is finished, the exhibits are up, the property has been landscaped, the staff is ready and the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House at 2321 Vineville Avenue, Macon, Georgia will open the doors to fans and friends for the first time the weekend of December 5 and 6, 2009. 

Starting at 9 am Saturday December 5 and 11 am Sunday December 6 we will greet fans and welcome them into the museum that they supported and created.  Yes, that’s right. You did it, all of you wonderful Brothers and Sisters whose lives have been touched by the music of this American institution that is the Allman Brothers Band. 

The Big House Foundation has raised $2.5 million over the past 5 years from fans like you from around the globe who are dedicated to the Allman Brothers Band and their music.  The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House is a fitting a tribute and gift from the fans to the band who is celebrating their 40th anniversary in music this year.  

We are proud of the work that has gone into this project and proud that we can add this wonderful attraction to those other historic house museums in Macon.  We think you will agree that The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House will take a very prominent place in the music history of not only Macon and America but of the world and will help brand Macon as a music Mecca, a destination for music fans the world over.

    

    

    

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


On April 23, 2010 the grand opening of 'The Allman Brothers Band Museum' took place.
The ribbon cutting was done by Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe:
