My husband and I wanted to be sure to see this library; but only had an hour before they closed. It is obvious there is a timed script for everything, and they really recommend you have more than an hour, but were very gracious to us for going at a faster pace. It is so interesting to see the different... More

This is a great library. His boyhood home is there and you can go inside and see the furnishings etc. The grounds and buildings are worthwhile. Don;t miss the talking cow when you walk in.

Last Friday, we took a day trip to the Billy Graham Library and we had a marvelous, awesome, uplifting and fruitful time. A few weeks before going (for the first time), I called and inquired the length of time needed to see everything. I was told 3 hours, but believe me, we were there 4 hours and missed a lot.There's...

This was my first time coming here and was an awesome experience. The tour was well planned out and there are lots of opportunity for you to rest and sit while doing the tour. The grounds are very well kept. The tour of the home was very quick because you only get to see the rooms from roped off areas... More

We came expecting to see a well documented and historical account of Billy Graham's life and to learn more about who he was, and what he did. We came and found his mother's rebuilt house, and a large barn. Inside the barn had nothing to offer. There were a few old black & white historical photos on the wall, with... More

Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry your visit was not an enjoyable one. It sounds like you may have missed the Journey of Faith tour, which takes guests through Billy Graham's life and ministry, and tells the story of what God can do with a life submitted to Him. We hope you'll consider visiting us again, and taking the tour.... More

Loved the place. Professionally done. Quiet awe-ish atmosphere. Automatic doors that opened after timed movie clips moving felt a little commercialized and theme-parkish but actually kept the pace moving. Artifact viewing tables and large scale photos on the walls definitely created an museum feel - that could not have been pulled off by anyone else. Impressive book collection in the... More

I've lived in CLT for 20 years. Had the chance to take my inlaws to the Billy Graham Library this year. They do not live locally so it was a treat for them. Lots of walking to see it all. For an 84 and 82 year old, it was very tiring. We were not able to finish the grounds portion... More

Well worth the visit to learn about a lifetime of global evangelism, and meeting with all walks of life, from to very poor to the most exalted.

I have followed Billy Graham since I was a very young girl, so it was especially meaningful for me to see those photos and videos all together and in one place just what an impact this man of God has made on this country and this world, I loved seeing where Ruth Graham, George Be early Shea and Cliff Burrows...

I really enjoyed this experience and the food is good too. The replica house was amazing and when you get lunch make sure you have the chicken salad. It has grapes in it and was mmm mmm good.
