Visited the Billy Graham Library last week with my husband. The library and grounds are beautifully done, and learning about the life of that wonderful man was such an inspiration. The volunteers are super friendly and I would highly suggest a visit if you are in the area. They also have a gift shop that has some unique items. Best... More

Awe inspiring displays; delicious lunch; and the only library I have ever been to that actually CHANGES LIVES! I have been to 7 Presidential Libraries.....this one beats them all.

First of all, the library is free to get in, but they accept donations. Many of the staff wear volunteer tags, which is a great way for these individuals to give back & do the Lord's work. As far as the tour is concerned, there are something like 13 rooms you go through, and they each highlight an aspect of... More

Billy Graham was a servant of the Gospel and obedient to God's call - great showcase of his ministry - but his wife, Ruth's exhibit really moved me! Seeing her grave epitaph outside is a must see!

Growing up in charlotte, nc the the name Billy Graham was a household name.During his many televised sermons my family home would be so quiet. My grandmother would always say 'He's the real thing, he walks the walk of a servant of the GOD we serve'. And this place is truly him. GOD BLESS BILLY GRAHAM SR !!!

A very worthwhile site to see for sure. Beautiful grounds, rebuilt childhood home, and very informative exhibits as you move around the museum. The restaurant has great sandwiches as well and a bookstore attached.

Our visit started when we drove in by the man at the main gate singing a song to us, while we were in our car. Never experienced that before. My parents were big "fans" of Billy Graham including attending a couple of his crusades, so I was interested in learning more about him. Everything in the library was very professionally... More

A quiet and peaceful location. Interesting history of the Ministry and you will learn a lot. Well maintained grounds where you can quietly walk, or just sit and pray. A really serene place where you feel that God is always there. The staff and really welcoming and the exhibits are extensive. Its worth the visit in Charlotte.
