What can you say. Billy Graham has been on mission for such a long time he's impacted millions of people. The library gives you a chance to experience his life and his ministry in a wonderful way. You can even eat in their restaurant. Give yourself a couple of hours to get through it, but allow yourself more time to... More

My wife and I stopped here somewhat on a whim while traveling through Charlotte. We enjoyed and respected Billy Graham's ministry over the years and were interested in finding out more about him. His boyhood home has been moved to this location and is interesting to walk through and hear stories by the guides about his life. The library and... More

I take my daughter to the Billy Graham Library every year around Christmas if we are in Charlotte. It was such a nice time, even though it is usually pretty cold. They have horse drawn carriages that take you on a carriage ride around the grounds. The lights are so nice. They have hot chocolate and other treats, a live... More

I do not consider myself a highly religious person, but the stop at the Billy Graham Library was well worth the 2 hrs we spent there. If there is one thing that turns me off is usually TV Evangelists. However, BG was just a guy who used TV to reach the masses and NEVER used it to promote himself. I... More

The Billy Graham library is a great place for kids and adults. They have the journey of faith, where people who are considering faith in Christ, can come and really learn what it's all about. They have a great bookstore with lots of resources, along with a cafe area for lunch, with lots of great offerings. Kids will love some... More

We took my grandmother to visit since she is a fan of Billy Graham but I wasn't too impressed by it. There is no entry fee so at least we didn't waste any money. I would not go back and I would not recommend anyone to go there either.

One of our families first outings as new NC residents, the first of many, as we now drag everyone to this educational, inspirational, FUN, attraction. Very well done with story of billy Graham's life compete with a tour of his childhood home in a beautiful setting. Avoid Thanksgiving-Christmas as crowds rival Disney during Easter break.

If you're a religious fanatic, this is the place for you. Otherwise avoid it as the plague. Do yourself a favor and visit the Discovery Place.
