Andy Griffith Museum.

Andy Griffith Museum

See Andy's sheriff shirt and badge, Goober's beanie (bronzed) -- and a lot of Andy Griffith relics that have nothing to do with Mayberry. He was a Hollywood actor, not a small town sheriff.

Mayberry PD motorcycle sidecar.

Andy Griffith Museum

Came by here very early in the morning so the Andy Griffith Museum was not open. We did enjoy the side car and cute saying etched in the block out front. The also have stars for each of the characters in the show.
