I wasn't sure what to expect. I know a lot of people respect Billy Graham as a religious leader, but I listened to some of his speeches and most of it has no foundation in fact

Thank you for your feedback about your experience at The Billy Graham Library. Billy Graham’s messages for more than 70 years are based on the truth found in God’s Word – how much God loves us no matter who we are and how we have hope in a relationship with Jesus. We hope that you’ll give it another shot and come back to the Library in the future.

The library is a complete guide in Billy's life. The rooms are well thought out and go from decade to decade. Don't forget to get lunch at their little diner.

There was a display about George Beverley Shea who had recently died. You were able to purchase some of his CD's in the bookstore and we purchased two and enjoyed listening to them.

We ate at the Graham Brothers Dairy Restaurant in the Library. The Chicken Salad was the best I had ever eaten. The food portions were large and reasonably priced.

This was our fourth visit to the Billy Graham Library and each visit gets better than the previous visit.

I was really glad that I went there with my family (hubby, mom + mom-in-law + brother-in-law) on a Good Friday. The timing was just perfect. We all enjoyed and spent about two hours there. It’s a serene place with a prayer garden where you could have some quiet time. You would also come to know how God touched lives of millions of people through Billy Graham. The admission is absolutely free! They also have a nice bookstore and cafeteria. Best of all, this place would remind you of how much Jesus loves you.
