It is the shrine for those who worship Andy Griffith. Not exactly a world class museum, but at $3 per person how can you go wrong? A relatively small museum, only a few actual displays of television sets and some clothing from the television shows done by Andy Griffith. The walls are covered with movie posters, photos, and assorted documents... More

It was fun to get back in time and see so many artifacts about Andy. You get to learn some about his life. I got a kick out of seeing the suit Barney wore when he would go visit Thelma-Lou!

Being a life long Andy Griffith fan our visit to the museum was a enjoyable one. Many items from the show. Very reasonable price to get in. Enjoyed the museum.

Andy and his life are thoroughly covered. If you loved him, this will fulfill all your dreams. Plenty about his show as well as Don Knotts and all the other characters. Get a pass for the movie theater in town and you'll learn about the area music. It also includes the Siamese twins exhibit(they had a farm in the area.)

Small but informative little museum. Alot of duplicate items, just different languages. Some actual items from TV series, but not as many as we had hoped. The downside, was the siamese twins museum/exhibit which is attached to the AGM.

This is one large room with lots of things all over the walls and some exhibits from TV sets and costumes. It only cost about $7 to visit and you can visit two other places with the cost too.

I was thrilled to see all of the memorabilia and props from the Andy Griffith show. Some of the props I had seen several days before while watching the show. There were items spanning his whole career, from high school up through his Matlock days. I was sorry to miss Thelma Lou by a day. Main street was also a... More
