We were not planning to stop here, but glad we did. Lots of memorabilia from the 1700 and 1800 . Loved the fire trucks in the basement. You get a great view of Main St on the third floor. I would recommend this museum if you like to learn more about the history of NC. :-) Great job to the... More

This was an unexpected visit. The museum was well laid out, the exhibits, while simple, were explained in great detail and gave a good sense of the history and geography of the place.

Large museum with several floors but they do have an elevator. We spent about an hour and a half going through it, lots of interesting things to see and read about. We found the Andy Griffith and Donna Fargo exhibits really interesting. If in the area you definitely need to stop by.

I found this museum as I was taking a Darker Side of Mayberry Walking Tour that started here. The museum is big with four levels so make sure you give yourself enough time to explore it. An elevator takes you to each level so it is wheelchair accessible. There are hands on sections for children that seemed to be enjoyed... More

This is worth the stop and the money- 4 floors and a nice kids area, with dress up and places to play. I highly recommend it.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed visiting this museum over Memorial Day Weekend. It was fun to learn more about the local history through the exhibits. It would've been nice to see a little bit about Andy Griffith at this location, although there's a separate museum dedicated to him. After dinner, we enjoyed the historic ghost tour (walking tour of the... More

A group of older ladies traveling to Mt. Airy to spend the day. We happened to park in a space right at the museum. We had been on the road a good while and needed to eat lunch before taking in the sites. We thought the museum looked just what we would enjoy. We walked in to check it out... More

Wanted to see all about the history of the area so stopped in while waiting on someone. The information was interesting and feel I learn something that day. The different areas were easy to see and read. The 3 fool was the tower of the clock on the building and you were able to see 360* view of the mountains... More

I would be tempted to say that this is one of the nicest small museums I have every visited, however I can't. It's actually not that small..... It is however, quite attractive. The Mount Airy area has a wide variety of interesting historical features, and the museum covers most of them quite well, from the Native Saura people who once... More
