Cool museum, liked the statue outside and the styrofoam cup collection with sketches of the shows characters on them were a very interesting display. Liked that you could just take a self paced tour of the museum. The Siamese twin displays were interesting also.

We enjoyed the museum. It was smaller than we expected, but well done. It was handicap accessible which we appreciated. I had forgotten Andy had been in so many different movies...the "snippets" from those movies were good reminders.

This museum was very informative about the life of Andy Griffith and how he got into show biz and on TV. Lots of beautiful scenery and places to eat and visit. The Blue Ridge Ms. are a short distance away.
