Come see the largest collection of Andy Griffith memorabilia collected by his friend Emmett Forrest. 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 open 7 days a week. Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

If you were a big fan of the Andy Griffith show or the man himself, this place has tons of information about him and his growing up. There’s also lots of facts about the show and replicas of certain sets. For anyone who is not a huge fan, it is $8 per person to walk through and it only takes about 20 minutes total. The staff was very nice and it is a good way to complete a visit to Mt. Airy North Carolina.

The Andy Griffith Museum is small but worth a visit. Most of the museum is about Andy Griffith in Mayberry which was modeled after Mount Airy, NC where the museum resides. If you liked the Andy Griffith Show, you will like this museum. There is very little about Andy Griffith and Matlock.

Buy a ticket for this and also see the Siamese Twins exhibit and the historic Earle movie theater. Parking available on site.

Mount Airy,NC, is definitely very skewed toward all things related to Andy and his life and career . This museum is not very large but it has some interesting info and artifacts in it. It also houses a one-room museum honoring Eng and Chang Bunker, conjoined twins from Siam, who settled here and prospered.
