I went during Mayberry Days so it was a little busy and they had several groups to deal with but it still was well run and went smoothly and quickly. Ther is a small admission fee to support the museum and they have hats and t-shirts and other souviners. They have the side car Barney bought and the "salt and... More

I am a huge fan of the show and of Andy himself but this museum was definitely not what I was expecting. It is very small, one room. It's mainly just newspaper articles and such thrown up on the walls. You do get to sit in the sidecar from the show and take a picture. Maybe that was worth the... More

The Andy Griffith Museum gives the visitor a lot of history on Andy's life growing up in Mount Airy and his acting career. It's well laid out and easy to see everything on your own. There's an optional audio tour you can purchase also.

Truly can feel the genuine southern hospitality from the show! From walking around in the museum to the statue outside - the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains - it has it all!

Enjoyed the day walking around Mount Airy, NC (Mayberry). Brought back the fun times of life and how I wish it could be now. To many angry people out there.

If you grew up in the sixties and remember The Andy Griffith Show and the follow-on series Mayberry RFD then do not hesitate to visit. It will reignite memories of childhood of watching the shows after school while enjoying your mom's after-school treats. The simple days! Although the museum is small, the audio devices (extra cost) help identify artifacts and... More
