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.

The folks at the Museum what the king of folks you think of in Mayberry. The museum is small and you are not allowed to take pictures inside but it's still worth the time to see it. Allow 30 minutes to 1 hour.

My husband is an avid Andy Griffith fan. Everything in the museum brought back great memories of all the old shows. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all step back in time to a much simpler lifestyle as they had in Mayberry? A must see for the Andy Griffith fan.

This is a wonderful museum that has a great deal of Andy items, as well as some items from other actors from The Andy Griffith Show. Take your time and enjoy every inch. The admission price is increasing next year, from the current $3 to $6. You may not take pictures in the museum, but in the lobby are awesome... More

It is like going back in time, they started charging going in to see where the jail was. The charge in the police car isn't worth it when you will see it parked in town.

Just a bit off the beaten path if you are headed north or south, this little museum houses some interesting artifacts from The Andy Griffith Show and other aspects of Andy's life. Seeing Barney's date suit and Andy's desk and Sheriff shirt made the stop memorable. The museum has the very cool statue of Andy and Opie going fishing. Head... More
