It is a museum... lots of original items. Honest folk... 30 minutes is not enough. It's all about Andy Griffith... if you liked his shows, you like maybe even love this museum.

A great little museum about a very good entertainer and there was a lot of information there that you never knew about him and the shows he was in and music he performed. Many pieces of memorabilia there that you would never have a chance to see. Good for and hour or so of browsing.

The Andy Griffith Museum wasn't quite what I expected but I still enjoyed the visit. There were movie posters, ads, and photos covering the walls. I realized there was certainly more to Andy Griffith's career than Mayberry and Matlock! I didn't do the audio tour due to time constraints but I certainly will do that on a return trip because...

If you are a fan you need to go to this museum. Museum is not very big but it is jam packed with Andy G items. Many items you will recognize from the TV show. $6 is the entrance fee.

Visiting the Andy Griffith Museum was like stepping back in time. The museum is state of the art. They offer audio tours for $8 and general admission is $6. The museum houses Otis' original costume along with Barney's "ole salt and pepper" suit. The museum does a wonderful job of chronicling Andy Griffith's life from school age to the Matlock... More

We thought we'd take a trip back in time--which we did. However, we were a little underwhelmed with the exhibit. The statue of Andy & Opie was the popular place for a photo.

The Andy Griffith museum is great....the admission is 6.00 Without audio and 8.00 with audio. This will also get you free admission into Thelma Lou"s Exhibition.. And free admission to the historical earl theatre downtown main st Built in 1920 or1930"s...they have bluegrass musicians having a jam session....

We visited this museum in Mt. Airy during the recent Mayberry Days festival. The museum and the festival far exceeded our expectations. As did the scenery and mountains in this area of the country. My wife and I had such a good time and all in the company of other big time fans. The festival had "tribute" look-alike actors playing... More

My family toured the AGM, and it brought back lots of memories for us. The items on display were very interesting and reading about Andy's career was like a walk down memory lane.. I felt like we were visiting a relative with all of the things we had seen on tv in our lives. Andy truly was an American Icon,... More
