I'm a huge Andy Griffith fan, thus the trip to Mt. Airy. The museum has tons of memorabilia and I did learn a few things about Griffith. But you can't take pics and it was $6 each, which seemed a bit high for what it is. It's fairly small. I loved seeing the bronze statue of Andy and Opie outside.

They charge $6.00 or with audio $8.00. Just to get in and look at pictures and a suite. They will not allow picture taking. You can also see in another building the Siamese twins pictures. This was not worth the $6.00 that I paid.

This was our first visit to the Andy Griffith Museum and we enjoyed it.

I really was looking forward to visiting Mt. Airy and the Andy Griffith museum. I can't say I was disappointed but left wanting more and wishing for better. As everyone else has said it is a small room, however, no space is left uncovered. There is lots to see and you may have to strain your eyes a bit to... More

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.

Lots of memories from the past. Parents with young children wlll have ton explain a lot because they won't know what the things are. I didn't like the Siamese twins exibit. Too morbid for me,

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.
