Small but informative little museum. Alot of duplicate items, just different languages. Some actual items from TV series, but not as many as we had hoped. The downside, was the siamese twins museum/exhibit which is attached to the AGM.

This is one large room with lots of things all over the walls and some exhibits from TV sets and costumes. It only cost about $7 to visit and you can visit two other places with the cost too.

I was thrilled to see all of the memorabilia and props from the Andy Griffith show. Some of the props I had seen several days before while watching the show. There were items spanning his whole career, from high school up through his Matlock days. I was sorry to miss Thelma Lou by a day. Main street was also a... More

Enjoyed the history of Andy. Many wonderful pieces in the museum. Andy friend had his best interest to collect his memorabilia through all the years. So many stories/memories from all the people in town about Andy. I enjoyed every one of those shared memories!

The museum was smaller than I had envisioned (one room), but it is packed with goodies! I enjoyed seeing costumes from Andy's shows and personal photographs. You could spend an hour here and be ready to move on.

My husband and I had been to Mt. Airy a number of years ago but were invited return with friends on their first trip. The museum has been moved from a small, older building to a beautiful permanent location since our last visit. The admission fee of $3 is a great value for the memorabilia exhibited there, and for an... More

Although the museum is small, it is filled with wonderful memorabilia. There are sets from a couple of his tv shows in addition to costumes from both Andy Griffith and Don Knotts. There are movie posters from Andy's movies (I didn't remember how many movies he was in) and signed photos from cast members. The assortment of Mayberry collectibles was... More
