The collection features hundreds of items from the life and career of Andy Griffith in movies, television, and music as well as a variety of memorabilia. There are even actual props from The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock given by Andy Griffith himself. The collection also includes items donated by cast members and  actors from The Andy Griffith Show, as well as a special exhibit on the career of actress and current Mount Airy resident Betty Lynn who played Thelma Lou. Admission to the Andy Griffith Museum also includes an exhibit on the Siamese Twins; a photography exhibit "Mount Airy to Mayberry," and the Old-Time Music Heritage Hall at the Historic Earle Theatre, all within walking distance of the museum.

The Andy Griffith museum is small but it is jam packed with unique memorabilia, like,Otis Campbell’s suit. You’re sure to learn something new about Andy and/or the show each time you visit.

This museum had many items from the show, Mayberry, and from Andy's life/career. Enjoyed casually strolling through & learning some tidbits about the show & the actors.

I enjoyed learning more about the wonderful man Andy Griffith. I expected more Andy Griffith relics so personally I was somewhat disappointed, but it isn't called the "Andy Griffith Show" museum. It was a small place but we enjoyed our visit.

They did not know at the time of our visit when they would be done. I suggest you call the museum before your visit.
