“Boring”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

If you want to go somewhere that is about nothing more than how wonderful Dr. Graham is and what he's done for the world, this is it. But that is not what I was looking for. I wanted someplace that would be spiritually uplifting and a place where I could reflect ...

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you felt that way about your experience. The Journey of Faith tour at The Billy Graham Library is designed to inspire our guests by showing what God can accomplish through a life fully committed to Him. The Library is not about Billy Graham, but about the message of hope he faithfully preached for so many years. We hope you come back and give the tour another chance.

“A great history of a great man and what he stood for.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I enjoyed visiting each room starting at the beginning of his life and then his calling into ministry and how the Lord used him. The staff are very helpful and dedicated.

“Great Christmas Outing”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Learning more about Billy Graham's life and ministry was awesome. Seeing his actual boyhood home was great. It is very crowded at Christmas time but worth the trip.

“Not what we were expecting”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I guess we didn't really know what to expect, but the Library was just outstanding. The way the whole complex was set up kept your interest and the items they have selected to share were wonderful.

You certainly get a very good idea of who Rev. Graham is and a lot of the wonderful things he has done. Everything at the center is first class and well worth the entrance fee.

We had a ball, learned a lot that we didn't know, and had some very tasty ice cream on the way out. This was a very worthwhile afternoon.

“A MUST”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I visited the library during the holiday season. As a Christian and an admirer of Billy Graham, it was so neat to see his boyhood home and so much memorabilia from his life. The live nativity scene and choir were also a nice touch. The carriage ride is ok considering the long wait and you really do go far and see that much. But everything else is great!
