We decided to finally visit the Billy Graham Library and we were not disappointed. This is a treasure trove of modern day history (the last 70 years), with tons of pictures and memorabilia from Billy Graham's life as a preacher to many presidents and other world leaders. The DO push the religion a little, but not overly. The Library, itself,... More

Such as inspiring place for Christian's of any faith, these beautiful grounds showcase the family home and library of Billy Graham. We spent two hours here and loved the library with film and exhibits of the life of this remarkable man. We listened to some bits of sermons, explored mementos and books, and ate at the little restaurant. It was... More

This was a very peaceful place to be. Feels very spiritual when you are there. It is also educational. My kids came away with quite a bit. Very pleased overall and beautifully decorated for Christmas.

Plan to take an afternoon because there is so much to see. This is a spiritual walk highlighting the lives impacted by the life's work of Billy Graham over the past 60+ years. While there, make sure to treat yourself at the Dairy Barn!

Was pleasantly surprised by the touring of the museum..from the beginnings to the much later revivals.Even though the time of the self tour was 3 hrs,but it didn't feel like it,especially if you like historical stuff.Beautiful and truly well designed. Not a place for toddlers.The tour is just a little too long for them.

The museum held our full interest for a fascinating 3 hours visit. Very interesting the way they start with the early days of the ministry and then progress forward through tent revivals, crusades, presidents, behind the iron curtain, etc. Loved the video clip sequence of Billy Graham with various TV talk show hosts, including - who remembers this - Wood...

While the religious aspect of the library is a given, the historic element is often overlooked. There can be no dispute that Mr. Graham was an important figure in the religious community, but he was respected throughout the world by both Christians and non-Christians, alike. Within the walls of the library, visitors will find countless pieces of historical treasures. Letters... More

The Billy Graham library and grounds are a wonderful tribute not just to Billy Graham, but to his family and his ministry. Learn the story of Graham's life, set in a replica of a barn. His actualy childhood home is on site and there is often someone there to host you who knows him or the family. Especially beautiful at... More
