There is a nice supply of artifacts from the show and from Andy Griffith's career including Sheriff Taylor's desk, the jail door and keys, Barney's "best" suit, and the grand entrance doors to the courthouse and justice of the peace. What I didn't like is that photography was not allowed. Oh well. For $8, it was a nice stop and... More

If you are a fan of the Andy Griffith show, Matlock or just Andy this the place to be. Follows Andy from his boyhood in Mt. Airy to Hollywood and Manteo. Lots of good stuff!

The Andy Griffith Show Statue is a must see. It looks just like Opie and Andy. The museum dedicated to Andy is small but they fit allot in. The museum had many things from Andy’s life, the Andy Griffith show, and Matlock. Definitely will go back. Best Fathers Day gift!

It's good Mount Airy has something formal that acknowledges their connection to Andy Griffith and his long running show, but the price and content of this museum just don't add up to a great experience. To be sure, there is some interesting memorabilia and Mount Airy seems like a wonderful town. That said, I don't recommend going into the museum.... More

This is a must see for any and every Andy Griffith fan. The exhibit is not limited to the Andy Griffith Show but is filled with goodies from the show. They also have a great deal of artifacts from his film and tv career. It is only one large room but they have plenty to see for the small admission... More

You can't go to Andy Griffith's home town without visiting this. Not a large museum but was filled with pictures and displays from Andy's tv shows. Doesn't take too long to go thru it.

Lots of interesting materials from Andy's life and shows in the museum. The price is right. Spend the $6 per person and enjoy!

Small but packed with movie and tv stuff. There is a admission fee but its not expensive. Some props are from the show others are donated stuff. The only thing I disliked was you couldnt take pictures. Not all my family could come and I would have like to showed them some of what I saw.

We are big fans of the Andy Griffith Show and were so excited to visit "Mayberry"! The Andy Griffith Museum does not disappoint! So many exhibits to view! I loved the "small" things, like the name card from his high school graduation, and the church bulletin showing that he had a part in a play as a child. No photographs... More
