Awesome stop for Andy Griffith fans.

While I was disappointed that you are not allowed to take pictures in the museum I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Andy's history. This is a must do for fans of TAGS.

The museum was small with hundreds of photos and videos of Andy Griffith and friends. Some memorable of his show. Not bad for $6.00

This is just a large room, but it is filled with lots of Andy Griffith personal and professional memorabilia. If you like Andy Griffith or his work at all you will enjoy this very much. While in town you should also stop at Floyd's barbershop and then go about 4 blocks down the street to see the sheririffs car (You... More

We were a little disappointed. It basically was one big room with a lot of old movie posters etc. They did have some neat things from the Andy Griffith Show and Matlock. Price was reasonable.

We drove through Mount Airy on our way home from Disney World specifically so that we could see Andy Griffith's boyhood home and the Andy Griffith museum, and we are so happy that we did. The museum was full of amazing old pictures, newspaper articles and Andy's personal belongings, and it was fascinating to look through everything. Although we were... More

There was nothing I disliked, except I wished it was bigger with more in it. The price for admissions was acceptable ($6) and there was a lot to see, I just wanted more.

We were taken in by the Andy Griffin museum. What a mistake. It's just a bunch of old photos and set props. Rather hot and lots of people waiting to get an autograph from Thelma Lou. Save your time and cash for the candy stores.

Have been a fan of the Andy Griffith show since a small kid / really thought I would get to see a lot of memorabilia from the actors that made this small town famous but what a ripoff. Lots of pictures on the walls but not much else. $6 a person and $2.50 charge for using debit card. No photography... More

Not much in the museum. Price was high and you were not allowed to take pictures. It was a big disappointment. On the plus side - bathrooms were clean and the staff was friendly.
