Andy Griffith Museum, Mount Airy

(4.1/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Andy Griffith Museum a part of your Mount Airy vacation plans using our Mount Airy trip builder.

  • The museum is paired another viewing highlight. Lots of career highlights and memories of Andy Griffith. Very nice. Betty Lynn is also featured in a separate section. She also starred in many movies.  more »

  • 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.
  • Everyone that loves the Andy Griffith show this is a must. Can't wait to go back
