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!

Well I was able to walk Snickers around the ground but not inside. Didn't even bother to try to go inside. But I do look forward to returning

Visited 4 or 5 years ago and was extremely impressed with the museum. Went again today and was blown away. Completely remodeled. Our visit 4-5 years ago was great, but the new place looks like it was designed by the same folks who designed the...More

For any Andy Griffith fan this is the place. Lots of information and things to learn about him. The museum does charge an $8 fee. But we'll worth it.

Great place to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Andy Griffiths Home town. We bought a CD with some of his comedy routines and laughed the whole way Home. I had no idea he was in so many movies. Looking forward to watching some now.

Although it is small, it is packed with memorabilia you will not see anywhere else. Don’t miss the level downstairs to see Thelma Lou’s part of this great show!

The lady working was pretty bossy...but nice I guess. There was some interesting stuff to look at but the set up is really awkward. Thankfully it was only $8.

I think this museum is lacking in two ways. One, there’s no place to sit and watch the movie clips, and other recorded media about Andy Griffith. You have to stand in front of a tv screen and keep selecting options for what to see....More
