Nice Place

Nice collection of Andy and Mayberry memorabilia. Nice that the price of admission gets you into two museums

I am a huge fan of the Andy Griffith show, have been since it first aired, and this was like actually visiting Mayberry. The actual props used on the show that were by the cast members was worth the trip to Mt. Airy. I would say if you are a fan of the Andy Griffith show it would be worth... More

Wonderful little museum featuring all the misfits of Mayberry. If you are lucky you may be there on the day one of the remaining characters visits to sign autograohs and speak of their time on the Andy Griffith Show.

So charge extra fir debit cards or credit cards. (I was told once a buisiness could not do this but...) any anyway only $6per person well worth it if your a fan. Prices on cd and movies cheaper downtown in stores.

The cost wasn't so bad for a tourist attraction but I was very disappointed at the inside. I didn't really see alot of "artifacts" from the show besides a few things donated to the museum owner. Most things are newspaper articles, and pictures signed by cast members sent to the owner. Guess I just expected more memorabilia from the actual... More

If you're a fan of the show Mayberry....make sure you don't miss this great little museum. Lots of interesting items and facts regarding the show and all it's characters. Thank you to Andy's friend Emmett for donating most of the items.

This museum is small, but definitely has cool memorabilia. Any big fan of Andy Griffith or The Andy Griffith Show is sure to love this stop. The third Friday of every month actress Bettie Lynn (Thelma Lou of The Andy Griffith Show) holds a meet and greet/photo op at the museum. I highly recommend scheduling your trip to the museum...

I thought going to Mount Airy it was "required" to go to the Andy Griffith Museum... It was $6/person and the entry got you into the "museum"/ This museum was a average size room that was filled from floor to ceiling of newpapers, certificated and other items in chronological order of Andy's life. Small displays were set up with items... More

So much to see. For the "Andy Griffith Show" fan, this place is a must see. Be sure to get a picture in Barney's side car.
