A smaller museum that takes less than 2 hours to see we everything, but if you a fan of the Andy Griffith TV series this place is fun to visit and the nearby restaurants, shops, and winery make this a great day trip destination from Raleigh-Durham.

This museum was great. It had pictures, videos and props from the entire life of Andy. Memorabilia from his early days until late in his career were on display as well as Barney's and Otis's suits. Included in the admission is a tour of the Siamese Twin Museum next door.

The museum is a wonderfully nostalgic trip through Andy Griffith's life and his TV shows and movies. It includes original costumes and some of the furniture from The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock. The building includes posters and memorabilia from several of his movies. All in all, a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. Warning: The museum admission... More

Just happened to detour off highway for a bite to eat and a coffee, when we found this little gem. As someone born in late 50s I used to watch the Andy Griffith Show all the time. Lots of memorabilia to look at and was fun to see shots from the show and his life. Was well worth the time.... More

Small and not too much to it. If you are a Mayberry fan check it out. Nothing that would "wow" you if not a series fan.

I went during Mayberry Days so it was a little busy and they had several groups to deal with but it still was well run and went smoothly and quickly. Ther is a small admission fee to support the museum and they have hats and t-shirts and other souviners. They have the side car Barney bought and the "salt and... More

I am a huge fan of the show and of Andy himself but this museum was definitely not what I was expecting. It is very small, one room. It's mainly just newspaper articles and such thrown up on the walls. You do get to sit in the sidecar from the show and take a picture. Maybe that was worth the... More
