This museum contains lots of memorabilia from Andy Griffith’s life and career. It isn’t really large but it is worth the time if you are in “Mayberry”.

I really enjoyed the museum, lots of information, especially the section on the Siamese twins. Glad we went, although the 8$ admission is a little high,

Really enjoyed visiting the museum, what a great part of history. We were able to meet Betty Lynn aka Thelma Lou and have her sign pics. We loved spending time with her and hearing stories about the show and all her travels.

Oh the memories from childhood were linked with Andy, Opie and the rest of the show. The museum was great and I learned amazing facts about Andy. Fabulous memorabilia.

Though this is a short, small Museum, if you are an Andy fan you have to include a stop here. It was fun. Take time to see the exhibit of Chang and Eng, the Siamese Twins, it's interesting too.
