My first visit to Mount Airy and the museum was July of 2012, shortly after the death of Andy Griffith. The museum is chock full of props, costumes, scripts, photographs, and other memorabilia from the show. A delightful and nostalgic trip down memory lane. Since then I've been back many times and anytime I have friends or family from out... More

A museum not to be missed. So much to see and you can elect to have the audio included in your admission and it is something I highly encourage so you can get the stories behind the show.

The Andy Griffith museum was a nice stop if you are a fan of the show. There was a lot of nice memorabilia. I do wish it would have had a little more Opie and Aunt Bee. We really didn't see anything of that. You got a few extras by buying tickets to the museum. With the purchase you got... More

We had a fun day visiting Mt. Airy on our way south. Very quiet town this time of year which was great to enjoy the visit, meet some local business people.Fun to see the memorabilia of Andy's career and info on the Andy Griffith show and Matlock.

While the museum is small there is a tremendous amount of memorabilia in this small spot. The audio guide was interesting but poor recording quality. Definitely worth an hour of your time. Good photo opportunity out front with the Andy and Opie statue.

Definitely worth the $6 per person we paid to get in. No photography or video allowed in the museum, which was a little disappointing. Apparently the flash causes pictures/print to deteriorate. I discovered a lot of about Andy i didn't know, include a little about his personal life and family. Very interesting just browsing ... there's a lot to look... More

Even though this is a very small museum, I thoroughly loved it. It had actual memorabilia from the television show, which to me was awesome to see. It brought back a lot of memories and I thought it was so neat being able to see actual clothing and furniture from the past shows. If you are an Andy Griffith Show... More

Not sure many of us didn't watch Andy Griffith in his TV show. Walking around town you see lots of memorabilia; old Mayberry Police Car available for tours etc. This museum was very nicely done with lots of items to view, well laid out. Takes about an hour to really see and watch the videos but it is time well... More

I love "The Andy Griffith Show" so we stopped in Mt. Airy during a recent road trip to the beach. Of course, we had to go to the museum. Your first stop should be the wonderful statue of Andy and Opie outside. Then step through the doors of the museum and prepare to be overwhelmed. I had no idea there... More
