Such great memorabilia but also very informative about the show. Learned things i did not know. Well done, small but well laid out. Admission was $9 but so worth it to see all the items that brought back many memories. Wonderful celebration of a family friendly tv show.

We had read that the admission charge of $8 would include the Andy Griffith Museum, Betty Lynn Exhibit, Siamese Twins Exhibit, and the Earle Theater so when we were downtown we bought our ticket at the Earle. Unfortunately, there was nothing going on there on a Monday although they were promoting ticket sales. Andy's museum is located in a nice building a few blocks from the Earle. It is a smallish place, on one floor, nicely laid out, attractive and clean. The Betty Lynn and Siamese Twins Exhibits are in a basement in a building next to the Andy Griffith Museum and are small but interesting. I really did not know that much about Andy and had only seen a few shows. The museum shows he was quite an accomplished person and an excellent comedian.

Driving through North Carolina we decided to stop off for a visit of the Andy Griffith Museum. Loved it, it brought back so many memories and things we didn't know.

This museum is easy to find. It is not very big, only takes an hour or so to see everything. There are lots of artifacts from report cards and yearbooks to the clothes he wore on his two television shows. There are some interactive touchscreens and a place where you can listen to his music. If you grew up watching the Andy Griffith Show this is a must-see. Downstairs there is the Betty Lynn exhibit. She played Thelma Lou on the show. This is a very nice exhibit showing pictures from movies she made and her service uniform from her time in the USO during World War II. Also displayed is some of her art work as she is a talented artist. Next to this exhibit is the Siamese Twins exhibit--Chang and Eng. Turns out they settled in this area as adults. This exhibit is interesting as well.

This was a neat little museum. It was fairly cheap to enter and highlighted Andy's life accomplishments from a little boy to his death. There were plenty of original props from both the Andy Griffith Show (Andy, Don, Francis, George, etc.) and Mattlock. They offer an additional tour of the playhouse where Andy started acting for an additional cost. It is definitely worth visiting if you are a fan.
