A Must See!

This is a very interesting museum of Andy's life. If you've seen his movies, TV shows, etc. you will love spending time in this museum.

Really boring and quite a let down, was nothing like I thought it would or should be!The rest of town with antique shops and vendors was nice.

Small, but very interesting. Lots of info about Andy's early acting career which was very informative. Learned the words to the Andy Griffith theme song for the show. Recommend, especially for anyone old enough to remember his Mayberry Days. Might have been a little better if we had purchased the audio option.

Went to "Mayberry" for an afternoon to take in a few of the sites, and went over to the Andy Griffith Museum. It's pretty small, but big enough to cover Andy's career, with plenty of Andy Griffith Show items, as well as Matlock and his movies. I'm sure it's excellent for a big fan of his, but for someone who... More

Betty Lynn was in town and she was such a lovely lady. The museum is small and not many unique items. But the staff is friendly and for the Andy Griffith fan you will need to check it out.

Well who would have thought such a place existed, what's next a three stooges museum (there is one folks in Philly)? So we went to Mayberry and decided to spring for the $6 tour. If you like pictures and movie posters you will enjoy this, if you want to see personal effect like uniforms and show props you will be... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. A recording of Andy doing "What it was was football" was playing as we looked at all the pictures and movie posters.

This is a must stop to make. Be prepared the place is very small, but there is a lot to look at. There is a good mix of Andy Griffith and the Andy Griffith show memorabilia to see. The only draw back is you can't take pictures.
