Trip Planner: USA / North Carolina / Mount Airy / The Andy Griffith Museum
Stop by and say howdy to one of American television's icons at The Andy Griffith Museum. Although the famous actor was known for his work on TV, he was also a producer and a singer. Inside the museum, you'll find the largest collection of Andy Griffith memorabilia in the world, including television props and items from Griffith's own collection. The attraction is a labor of love by Griffith's friend Emmett Forrest, who established the museum with his donation of memorabilia. Forrest was a lifelong friend of Griffith's, and he spent 25 years planning for the attraction's 2009 opening.

Interesting museum but small. Enjoyable. A lot of information about Andy Griffith and there was a man in front of the museum with a Camel standing next to a statue of Andy who allowed us to take...

We enjoyed seeing the real clothing, props, manuscripts, court house doors, etc.. I wish the price were a little lower for the museum considering the size, but I'm glad we visited. It was very well...

We decided to make the trip here and we were not disappointed. Lots to see and read. Touch screen interactive video clips and information is new. We saw , read and heard things we never knew. Beautiful tribute to a beloved actor. His life is well documented. We recommend you plan a day or two and come here. Beautiful town with wonder people.
It's a nice museum if you're old enough to remember Andy Griffith and most notably his namesake show. We enjoyed our visit a great deal. The building is small but the exhibits were nice and the clothing and other materials from the show put a smile on our face as we remembered a time far far away.
The Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy NC is a sweet little museum. This was a great visit with interactive monitors (Which my wife loved) and lots of keepsakes from the cast of the Andy Griffith Show. In addition it has some nice memorabilia from Andy Griffith's singing days and some of his other movies. There's more to see downstairs too. The museum doesn't take that long to visit, unless your wife likes to press every button on the AV displays like mine does, but it's just about right. Then, when you're done, take a visit down on main street for more souvenirs, visit Floyd's Barber Shop, and grab a Barnie Burger at Barney's Cafe. ...oh...oh... loved the coffee at "Page's Books and Coffee Shop". Really flavorful and not bitter. Sweet staff too! I really hope you found this review helpful! 😊
An amazing place with such amazing TV history. The museum might not be too big but it's about what it represents in a person like Andy Griffith and the characters that were on his show. Many memorabilia items on display. And a small shop to buy items. If you're a fan of Andy Griffith this must be a place that you have to go.
Cute! Cost $10 each adult. Knew he could sing but didn't know he had recorded albums. Was fun. Recommend.
