Lovely, peaceful, historical look at Billy Graham’s life and ministry. Even as a different denomination than him, it was inspiring to see his faith and devotion.

Went here on our visit to Charlotte to spend Christmas with our family.
What’s wonderful surprise and experience.
We enjoyed every aspect of the museum and grounds, however, we were especially wowed by the staff. Every single one of them was kind, informative. There was no preaching, just sincere kindness. You can definitely see the “spirit” in them.
I highly recommend a visit.

We went to Christmas at the Billy Graham Library. What an excellent time. First, do not start your visit at 5pm. Go to the Journey of Faith tour at 3 or 3:30. It takes long enough and the tour is the same all day every day. There is nothing Christmasy about the tour. (Then you can have time to get to McAdenville for Christmas lights). The tour itself is one of the best ever. The suppers on weekends sell out early so we missed that. So, the offerings were carriage rides...nice. The Living Nativity which was marvelous especially with the baby animals. One suggestion; it would not hurt to put together some music and every 30 minutes have the characters come out to the music., A musical moving production could be more effective. You need shifts anyway. Christmas Carolers? There were two and not very good. Sorry, I know NC still is much more strict than SC for Covid. Can't you collaborate with churches like NarroWay Productions to get living nativity actors and musical ensembles, choirs, musicians? We did not find the goodies unless they were for sale at the Dairy Bar. Also a highlight was Ruth's Attic bookstore. It was better stocked than any other store we've seen in years. We got 22 books. Thank you for a great Christmas experience.

My husband and I spent about 3 hours on the beautiful grounds and in his childhood home and the library. The exhibits were well done. The use of video, photos, artifacts and text give a great look into the lives of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham. They love of people and love of the Lord shines through. It's amazing to see them in their mountain home with their children in one photo and then standing next to Queen Elizabeth in another photo. I think they were comfortable in any setting because they loved people.
We also had lunch at the Graham Brothers Dairy Bar, and it was very good food and reasonably priced. The Restaurant is very clean.
I shopped in Ruth's Attic Gift Shop and bought a chronological Bible that I am enjoying reading.

This is a great history of Billy Graham---reminding visitors of the impact he has had on so many people. Very kind guides help you see the entire place which is called a library but is more of a museum and history lesson. Contains a very strong Christian message.

Absolutely beautiful. It was the highlight of my trip to Charlotte. Mr Graham’s life was worth capturing in this way. His ministry and commitment to God is inspirational and humbling. Even a mon Christian would enjoy the visit. Another note, The staff is very friendly and helpful. The tour is well organized.

We spent a few hours at the Library and will return later in the year. The homeplace was very interesting, but the presentations inside the barn were fantastic! Similar to the methods used in some of the Presidential Libraries the numerous rooms immerse you into his family and religious life, and accomplishments. Kids will enjoy the talking cow! :) Just a very relaxing and calm place to spend some time. Don't forget to try the hot dogs at the restaurant, and the prices a very reasonable.

We had requested a wheelchair and they met us at the bus with one. The history is wonderful and the way they have the flow of each highlighted is excellent. With no cost it is a must to see. The food was well prepared and tasty. There is a lot of walking but they do have places to sit.
