Andy Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina is home to the new Andy Griffith Museum. 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.

We weren't going to go thru this but decided since we were here we might as well. It was truly interesting. I'm a fan of the show so I enjoyed seeing everything there from the show. It was worth the money and time.

For a small museum, this place packs a lot in. The video and audio screens of Andy's movies, TV, and comedy career are wonderful. Coupled with elements from his early career and movie and tv scripts, you will be taken back to Mayberry of old....More

For those who watched or still watch, the museum is a must. We went there in October and not only was the museum fascinating but weather perfect. The exhibit shows that nostalgia can be exciting. Highly recommend visiting.
