This museum works very hard at bringing exciting exhibits to our town. The space is kept beautifully and changed exhibits ever so often. "Mayberry" history is only a small part of the great discoveries you'll find here.

The museum is a wonderful stop to Mount Airy. They have rotating special features as well as fixed features detailing the history of surrounding area. The best parts are an interactive kids room and the history of local music exhibit.
