The Andy Griffith Museum Tours

The Andy Griffith Museum
Boasting a massive collection of memorabilia, the Andy Griffith Museum is an ode to the entertainer’s early life as well as his career in film, TV, and music. Learn about the late actor and his hometown and influence on pop culture. Plus, check out props, wardrobes, and other artifacts from The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock.

The Basics
Located in Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy—the setting of the show’s fictional town of Mayberry—the Andy Griffith Museum makes a fun road-trip stop for pop-culture enthusiasts or Andy Griffith fans. You’ll also get access to the “Mount Airy to Mayberry” photo exhibit, as well as the Betty Lynn exhibit, featuring the life of the Mount Airy–based actor who played Thelma Lou on The Andy Griffith Show.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Admission to the Andy Griffith Museum comes with access to several of the town’s other exhibits.
  • The museum is located near numerous restaurants and shops.
  • The site is wheelchair-accessible but can be difficult to navigate when crowded.

How to Get There
Located on Rockford Street in Mount Airy, the museum is within walking distance of other downtown attractions. From I-77, take exit 100 for NC-89 and follow W Pine Street to Rockford Street.

When to Get There
The museum is open year-round, but the most popular time to visit is during the annual 4-day Mayberry Days festival, held over the last weekend of September.

Mayberry Days
The rural town of Mount Airy was made famous by The Andy Griffith Show, which was set in Mayberry—a fictional town that closely resembled Griffith’s actual hometown. Embracing its role in the TV show, Mount Airy hosts the annual Mayberry Days festival, which takes visitors back in time and into the scenes of the beloved show. The weekend is filled with parades and other events and activities for the whole family.
