We stopped in on a chilly, blustery day. The center has all the requisite maps and other materials, and you can even pick up a free tote bag (imprinted with local advertising). The friendly attendant on duty that day was perhaps too friendly. She couldn't (or wouldn't) stop talking and gesturing long enough for us to get in any questions... More

We stopped in with a quick question, and came out very informed on the town and surroundings. Wonderful lady providing answers to anything you could imagine to ask, and then some.

When visiting Mt. Airy you have to stop to take a picture if nothing else. Did not go into the museum.

The statue of Andy & Opie is NOT at the visitors' center but at the Andy Griffith museum. We did stop in the center and they were very friendly and helpful.

This is the place you want to visit first when you arrive in Mount Airy. There are loads of pamphlets and magazines with information and places to see in the town and area. The folks working/volunteering there are very helpful with giving you a map of where to go and places to see.
