Just what you would expect from the Andy Griffith Museum in America. This place gave a delightful feel of Americana, true bits of memorabilia from the show and from Andy-and-friend's career. Good for a smile.

This is a smaller well done venue that will take even the most ardent Andy Griffith Show fan no longer than 30 minutes to an hour to visit. Cost was a few dollars but less than the cost of a movie and better than most. The museum is a work of appreciation for Mt. Airy's role as the hometown of... More

One of America's all time good guys, Andy Griffith, and all his Mayberry friends are frozen in time at this museum. Barney's suit, Andy's sheriff office and shirt, Goober's famous outfit and original hat are all there for up close inspection. If you visit on the 3rd Friday of any month you can meet Barney's TV girlfriend Thelma Lou (Betty... More

Enjoyed the museum offers a lot of history and memorabilia .Was a little disappointed that some of the background of Aunt Bea's history and clothing was not there.The other character from the Andy Griffith show was Miss Crump. The staff working very nice and helpful and very knowledgable of the history .Fun Afternoon!
