Stop by and say howdy to one of American television's icons at 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.

  • Great museum. I didn't look up from the walls until I was halfway around and noticed that it wasn't even that big of a facility. The stuff is packed in so it still took a while to see everything. Lots of cool facts about the show and the man. Glad someone had the forethought to gather so many pieces. Took me a while to get through it all. Any Andy Griffith fan will be sure to enjoy it.
  • I love the andy griffitth show remind me of home im from southcarolina
  • I love this!!! Had a great time and also learned some things I didn't know!!! Also very nice and kind people who work there!!!
  • If you are a any type of fan of the Andy Griffith Show then you will absolutely love the museum as it's just jammed packed of items from the show. Well worth the cost of admission that's for sure.
  • my husband and me were there in July of this year (2015) and loved it. Lots of things about Andy Griffith we didn't know and the best part was meeting Betty Lynn who played Thelma Lou. She is a wonderful and delightful lady. She's there the 3rd Friday of every month and is well worth waiting to see her. Will definitely go back
