My husband and I visited the Library and really enjoyed ourselves. When we came as they opened, only a few visitors where there and we felt kind of lonely, but a great visit. Since the crowd was few we got to see things as we wanted and did not have to stand in lines. This library is recommended for all,... More

Billy Graham's aim has always been to point people to Jesus Christ and this library and the surrounding property do just that. From the moment we drove into the parking lot, we felt like this was a place of peace. Very interesting history of this servant of God. We enjoyed our chats with the staff and had a nice lunch...

We were a bit concerned that we would be visiting a library with only books, but this turned out to be a well thought out exhibition of the life of Billy Graham. A most enjoyable and educational experience, with every single person on duty being so kind and courteous - they are all volunteers. What a great place the world... More

As so many reviewers have already stated, this is not a "library" in the truest sense of the word; you don't tour a home with a lot of books or collections once owned by Rev Graham. The site is now the location of his childhood home, reconstructed on the library "campus" with original bricks and wood flooring. In the home... More

We were greeted at the car park by an attendant who sang to us - thats a first. Library itself was very interesting and informative. We were there about an hour and a half and should have allowed more time as we didn't have time to visit the old Graham homestead. Extensive arrange of books and other material to purchase.... More

Loved the experience of visiting the Billy Graham Library. It is beautifully appointed, a living tribute to an evangelical legend. Presents all his life events and awards. Highly recommended if you are visiting Charlotte, NC and have an interest in Billy Graham and his organization. Also a walk through his childhood home that was moved in its entirety from its...

This is our second visit to the Library. This time we brought our daughter and her fiancé, my husbands aunt and her husband also his cousin and her husband as well as my grandson. We were moved just as much as the first time we went. Everything is so orderly, clean and well presented. Everyone is so welcoming. We ended... More

We always bring visitors to the Billy Graham Library. It's a well organized tour which highlights a remarkable individual and honors the life-work of Billy Graham. Wait time is minimal. I sometimes go to the attached gift shop, without doing the tour. They are a good resource for Christian gifts and material.
