We have visited for the past 3 Christmas seasons. Free admission and parking, but you may have to walk a ways to the bus pickup point. The Christmas light displays are beautiful. The LIVE NATIVITY is very moving and well done. The library windows in the shape of a cross are a powerful reminder of the reason for the Christmas... More

I loved that the library was about Billy Graham but the main focus was Jesus! It was amazing and unbelievable that it's free.

Please put the Billy Graham Library on your places to visit when in or near Charlotte. In a peaceful setting, visitors look inside Billy and Ruth Graham's life. The grounds are wonderful and a place to sit and reflect. Stay for lunch and enjoy delicious chicken salad.

This library has the story of Billy Graham, the most well known Christian Evangelist who is still living. His home has been grown to the site and is interesting to see. The library is filled with books and other items that would be of interest to Chrisstians.

Loved visiting the library. The visit is highly orchestrated because the guides want to be sure you get the full experience. Normally I'd be put off by this, but in this case it's a good idea to follow thebyellow brick road. Besides there's enough time to do your own thing along the way. The exhibits were very well done and... More

It is a truly lovely place with wonderful staff. The talking cow is so much fun for all. Nice bookshop and coffee shop. You will also get a chuckle out of the restrooms. The movie and exhibits really bring back memories of Billy Graham in his younger days. So nice to see the home he grew up in and tour... More

This is more of a museum with a very visual walk through history of this amazing Christian. The tour is free, and the wait can be between a few minutes to an hour if you go a during Christmas. They also have the first floor of the house where he grew up that you can tour. The bookstore is wonderful... More

Fascinating facts, delightful displays (love the cow) and inspiring stories make this FREE (yes, free) journey through the lives and ministries of the Grahams a must see in Charlotte. Ruth's recipes are served in the cafe (for a cost) and the chicken salad is fantastic! The grounds are lovely any time of year, especially inviting and nostalgic at Christmastime.
