Who doesn't love "The Andy Griffith Show"?? Come see many original props from this iconic tv show. Barney Fife's "salt and pepper" suit, Otis Campbell's jacket and hat, Goobers hat, boots and high-waist pants, Otis' still, the courthouse doors, and much more.

Andy Griffith Museum is a treasure. Nostalgia at every turn. So glad items were saved and collected and thanks to Andy for donating so many of them. Not to be missed while in Mt. Airy!
