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...

Great memoballa. Great history beyond the TV show and well represented. Very pleased in the behind the scenes pictures and stories. If you love the show and history, it's worth visiting.

Lots of photos of Andy Griffith & memorabilia. Lots of Mayberry stuff. Cute photo opportunities in the lobby. It was only $3 to get in, & worth that, but very small. The Siamese Twin exhibit there was interesting.

We had a nice time strolling through the exhibits while listening to clips of the Andy Griffith Show and interviews... very fun and informative. The museum grounds are nice, too. We ate lunch on the picnic tables outside, and took photos with the statue of Andy and Opie. This place is worth a visit.

If you are an Andy Griffith fan this place shouldn't be missed if you are in the area. Lots of memorabilia presented in a folksy manner. Fun memories for older folks who enjoyed Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Opie, Floyd, Betty Lou, and Helen! Enjoyed the town of Mount Airy and a drive by to see Andy's house.
