I would recommend everyone take advantage of this free tour. I have read reviews where they said they felt like someone was trying to save them at every step. I did not have this feeling. Although the staff is there and I am sure if you felt the power of God sweep over you, they would be glad to help.... More

After attending a wedding nearby we had an afternoon open and decided to take in this delightful place! Our family has always had the greatest respect for what Billy Graham has done for Christianity. So when we realized we could see where he came from and the impact he has made on the world, we eagerly embraced this adventure! The... More

On the Billy Graham estate sits his childhood home that was moved from another location in Charlotte and a large barn-looking building that is the actually library. It's more than a library though. You enter into the huge book store and cafe area and then you can join a tour through the museum part. It's all about Billy's life and... More

I'm a Christian involved in ministry and I knew Billy Graham is a great evangelist, but didn't know too much detail about him. The talking cow was kind of cheesy but it is probably to appeal to children. The videos and information were motivating. I thought it was cool to learn that presidents trusted him and he appeared on many... More

Historical artifacts from around the world the walking through the foot of the cross reality says it all. The people that work there and the grounds are beautiful. A piece of Berlin Wall to gifts from presidents make this a must for children and adults.

The library is impressive in every way, but mostly (and predictably) in it's modesty. The man who led some of the most incredible revivals in US history, advised presidents, and was America's preacher for so many years is honored with the class and dignity you would expect.
