Remembering an old show

The size was small, but it was packed with old photos and tapes from the show as well as Andy in his younger years as a commedian

Don't try to pay for the pricey admission tickets with your charge card or a $2.50 fee is added. NEVER experienced that sort of cash bullying before. The "museum" is basically one large room you walk around the perimeter of divided up by different exhibit islands. Very interesting information about Andy's life but much of the memorabilia plastered on the... More

Museum is one mid sized room with some photos, a few clothing displays, and a prop or 2. I've been to lots of museums. This one is on the lame and boring side. I usually read everything ... but did not here. I only stayed about 10 minutes, 5 minutes longer than I needed but I had to wait on... More

Was disappointed in this. Everything in there except a couple outfits is material that you can read on the internet. I would not go back to this.

We learned quite a bit about Andy. There was a lot that we did not know. He was remarkably accomplished. There is a great deal of reading required in the museum. I came away with a greater appreciation of Andy's life.

Visiting here with friends and looked over the life of Andy Griffith. Was ok overall, but not a very large museum. Learned a fair amount about the characters of the show and how they met. Certainly the town is very proud of their history and past famous residents. About 6 dollars per person to visit.

A smaller museum that takes less than 2 hours to see we everything, but if you a fan of the Andy Griffith TV series this place is fun to visit and the nearby restaurants, shops, and winery make this a great day trip destination from Raleigh-Durham.

This museum was great. It had pictures, videos and props from the entire life of Andy. Memorabilia from his early days until late in his career were on display as well as Barney's and Otis's suits. Included in the admission is a tour of the Siamese Twin Museum next door.

The museum is a wonderfully nostalgic trip through Andy Griffith's life and his TV shows and movies. It includes original costumes and some of the furniture from The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock. The building includes posters and memorabilia from several of his movies. All in all, a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. Warning: The museum admission... More
