Andy Griffith Museum Reviews & Ratings
For a fan of Andy Griffith, this is a MUST-stop! Even if you are not a fan or do not know who Andy is, you should still consider pulling off the interstate and visit MT. Airy, specifically the museum! Great exhibits. Nice t-shirts available for purchase and quite a few DVDs and books.
Highly recommend taking a making a day of it. Most of the exhibits were within walking distance of each other. Only two were where you had to drive to see them, like Andy's homestead. Great museum with so many memories. I would go back again in a heartbeat. It is small but packed with memories. Please take the time to stay near Pilot Mountain and visit the town of Mayberry.
It was interesting. Maybe wished for a little more. We wanted to visit the town but there was Autumn Leaves Festival going on so we thought we'd be happy to to return in the future.
Highlights the Andy Griffith Museum and Andy's career. Very cool for people who have watched the show or followed Griffith career. There are other exhibits downstairs like the twin exhibit, there is alot of history covered there as well. Very cool all around worth a stop.
Very neat place in his hometown. Surrounding Mount Airy is cool too. If you like Andy Griffith or the Andy Griffith show, definitely worth the visit.
