Several fun Mayberry events have got the attention of Floyd and Andy and Barney and the Boys.

The Andy Griffith Museum, featuring the late Emmett Forrest’s monumental collection of Andy Griffith artifacts, is open!

Please note that the Museum has more than just Barney’s Two Rules at The Rock. With North Carolina pausing in a modified Phase 3 of pandemic protocols until at least early December, the Museum’s Rules include: Only 25 visitors at a time, everyone must wear a mask (bring your own or come prepared to buy one for $5.35), wear gloves if you’re planning to use the Museum’s touch screens, and have a credit/debit card or exact change for payment.

For complete updates on operating hours, safety procedures, or other info, visit the website at www.andygriffithmuseum.org or call (336) 786-1604.
