  • National Infantry Museum and IMAX
    It's hard to do justice to the full contributions of infantry men and women in the United States Army. However, one of the quickest ways to grasp the heroism of these individuals is to take a slow walk through the National Infantry Museum's signature attraction, The Last 100 Yards. A slightly sloped ramp leads through life-sized dioramas that depict some of the most significant moments in the infantry's past. Visitors walk onto battlefields from Yorktown to Antietam; Normandy to Iraq. Look straight up, and they'll even see a WWII troop glider and the enormous birdbath it's washed in every night. A dozen other exhibits spread across the 190,000-square-foot museum. Their combined artifacts, photos, and displays paint a vivid picture of the infantry from its earliest days to present. The National Infantry Museum also houses an IMAX theater as well as combat simulators whose mounted vehicles and simulated rifles put visitors right in the middle of realistic combat situations.

  • The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House
    “This was a crazy, insane house … basically a frat house, but to the 10th degree,” Conan O’Brien said of The Big House while interviewing Gregg Allman in May 2012. “Now, they’ve turned that house into a museum!” he marveled. The talk-show host and his legendary musical guest joked about how much work that must have taken. “To refurbish it, man, you just about have to jack that one up and roll a new one under it,” Gregg said, chuckling. Although the three-story, Tudor-style building has certainly been cleaned and restored, it’s still the same place where many founding members of The Allman Brothers Band—with their family and friends—lived and played their iconic music. Drawn to Macon by a contract with Phil Waldren Records, Berry Oakley and his wife, Linda, first rented the Big House in 1970, less then a year after the band formed. Guitarist Duane Allman and his brother Gregg joined the couple, and soon a rotating cast of characters was coming in and out of the high-ceilinged rooms. Past the first floor’s parlor and through the french doors, a sunroom became the music room where the band would, in Berry’s words, “hit the note,” and the kitchen and backyard became fertile spaces for songwriting. But tragedy struck the band before long: in 1971, Duane died in a motorcycle accident, and in 1972, Berry died in another. The remaining family moved out soon after. Today, the Big House showcases Duane’s 1975 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop guitar—which he played with more than half the time—and other instruments, handwritten song sheets, gold records, show contracts, and other band memorabilia. The room where Duane lived is preserved the way it was when he lived there in the 1970s complete with a leather jacket hanging in the closet.
