What a great way to spend a few hours. This tour is nicely done & it is free! Great family adventure rich in history & content. Many great Graham family items in display. The shop is huge. We didn't eat at the cafe but it looked good. Staff memebrs are kind & enthusiastic. Grounds are beautiful. Read Ruth's gravestone-very cute.

I stopped here out of curiosity, and it is more proselytizing than museum. Like other reviewers I found myself ushered into a never-ending tour, which did have informative exhibits about where Billy Graham came from and all the things he did. In the end, however, the museum seemed like an elaborate set-up to convert me or squeeze a donation. If... More

My husband and I stepped out of the car and noticed how beautifully kept the grounds were. Visited his childhood home and then proceeded to the library. Really enjoyed all of the video clips dating back to the beginning of his ministry and watching old videos when he was being interviewed by people like Phil Donahue, Woody Allen, etc. Wonderful...

We have visited the library several times. During the summer and at Christmas. I recommend that you go at Christmas and take the carriage ride. The museum itself is an awesome experience. It is very honoring not only to the life and ministry of Billy & Ruth Graham but to the Lord as well.

The library is of course not really a library but is a history lesson covering Billy's life. Wonderful presentation and well worth the time. There is a very nice book store and gift shop inside, which you can visit even if you don't want to take the complete tour.

The Billy Graham Library is a beautiful "experience". We love to go at Christmas to remember the true meaning of Christmas. They have a really neat "Teddy Bear Tea" party for the kids around that time that is really special. You have to get your ticket for the tea party early though (right after Halloween) because the event fills up... More

Great place to visit. Need to allow 2-3 hours to complete the tour. First part of tour is timed videos but there is a lot of area that you browse at your own pace. Very nice bookstore and dairy bar. Would highly recommend everyone visit. No admission fee.

My sister came to visit for the weekend and The Billy Graham Library was one stop on our agenda. It was absolutely amazing. It not only opened my eyes to some things but it made me appreciate the Graham families work. The staff at the Library was very helpful. They were very eager to help or answer any questions. I...
