If you loved the Andy Griffith Show, this is a must-see. A lot of the collections are relatively worthless monetarily, but it's the contribution to our cultural history that is truly invaluable. My wife and I were greeted by a local retired teacher in the parking lot of the museum. She gave us some great hints at what to see,... More

We enjoyed the visit to the museum with our Grandson. He made about 40 photos of the collection. A must for any Andy Griffith fan.

My wife and I on a spontaneous vacation and we just decided to come to Mount Airy because we are Andy Griffith fans. We really enjoyed looking back at the life of a vet accomplished man. The museum was so well laid out. The added treat was to be able to go to the live broadcast of the radio program... More

On Saturday, June 11, 2016, my sister-in-law, her husband, my wife, and I stopped in at the Andy Griffith Museum. The museum is fairly small for all the things they have on display. Signage helps to distinguish items actually used in the show from props that resemble items from the show. For such a small place, I thought their price... More

Had a great time reminiscing with all the photos and memorabilia from the Andy Griffith show and Matlock. Also Andy's movies. My particular headset from audio tour wasn't working so well. Audio not really necessary. Would recommend to friends and family.

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Mt Airy. I recommend a visit. Everyone was welcoming and very friendly. The museum is a personal collection of items from Andy or about Andy's career. Enjoyable visit.

Wasn't too impressed by the minimal number of artifacts in the museum, but found out later that they didn't open the museum until recently so artifacts are hard to come by. There is a lot to read, but it was difficult to keep young kids attention. It is a small museum for the price. Still enjoyed our time with Andy... More

Small building many pictures and history here about show and Andy matlock show. Would be better if there was a bigger post next to the pictures relating to what they are. Unable to get good shots of costumes and some pictures due to lights reflecting into the frames obscuring the faces . Might be nice to have a documentary running... More
