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.

  • The museum was very informative and the displays were well done. It covered Andy Griffith’s life and career very well. While also hitting on some of the other characters from Mayberry. We enjoyed it.....  more

  • We decided to make the trip here and we were not disappointed. Lots to see and read. Touch screen interactive video clips and information is new. We saw , read and heard things we never knew. Beautiful tribute to a beloved actor. His life is well documented. We recommend you plan a day or two and come here. Beautiful town with wonder people.
  • It's a nice museum if you're old enough to remember Andy Griffith and most notably his namesake show. We enjoyed our visit a great deal. The building is small but the exhibits were nice and the clothing and other materials from the show put a smile on our face as we remembered a time far far away.
