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

Loved this place!! It was really neat to be able to see the exhibits. It's not just Andy Griffith, It has other interesting poepl too! more »
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.
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.
