There is very little here about Andy Griffith the man and more about Andy Griffith's career. Lots of memorabilia from the show and other shows/movies and other actors/actresses from the show were in. Not worth the money.

I loved all of the pieces of history surrounding Andy Griffith, but if you are expecting an extensive Andy Griffith Show museum or anything interactive you will be disappointed. It is one room, and not interactive at all.

A one time visit is plenty. A fancy warehouse for memorabilia of the Andy Griffeth Show. I have no reason to return as the museum never really changes.

Lovely museum and arts center. Also a wonderful bronze statue of him with Ron Howard. A few blocks from the Main street shops and restaurants. Fun history and tv items. Also covers all he did for his hometown.

The museum is small and didn't hold the attention too long for my 3,6 and 8 year old who love watching Andy Griffith but meeting Betty Lynn was wonderful and the kids were tickled pink which is why I gave it 5 stars, otherwise the actual museum would be 3 stars for what you actually get to see. She was... More

We love the Andy Griffith Show and had been wanting to go to the area for a while. We went to The Andy Griffith Museum, and saw his homeplace, as well as the main street Mt.Airy (which has some Mayberry scenery included). It was $6.00 each plus tax to go through the museum. It was quaint, and I learned more... More

Great way to spend an hour or two. It's amazing how much memorabilia has been preserved. Nice to see original costumes and sets. Brings characters back to life!

We recently visited with our young adult children. All of us grew up watching the Andy Griffith show and the museum was a nice walk down memory lane. The photographs were very interesting and it was nice to see Andy's desk from the Sheriff's office. Everyone was friendly and we also enjoyed our walking tour of downtown "Mayberry". We look...
