Library was more than expected. Each room displayed a different time period in Billy Grahams ministry. He is truly a messenger from God.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The Billy Graham Library was an experience that I will always cherish. It was an inspiring trip through Billy and Ruth Grahams life with many interesting displays of his travels, crusades and the men and women behind the scenes. The staff was courteous and informative. Going in I thought it would be boring for our 8 year old grandson but the interactive scavenger hunt made it interesting for him as well. The 1st few rooms are slowed up only because of the videos however the rest of the museum can be viewed at leisure. We also had lunch at the dairy bar and was not disappointed there either. The tour of the house was a nice touch.

“Worth your time in Charlotte”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

A very good place for a visit if you are interested in the ministry of Billy Graham. One reviewer said you could not go through at your own pace, but that is only a half-truth. The first few rooms are videos that move you along as a group, but after the first few rooms, you are free to walk through the remaining parts of the museum at your own pace. It is very well done, on par with other museum I have seen on the Presidents, but not the magnitude (nor the price). Doesn't mention some of the problems Fundamentalists had with Billy Graham's methods, but they are evident behind the scenes. The Gospel message, however, is presented very well.

“Way more than I expected!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

My family of four (2 elementary aged boys) stopped by to check it out and spent 2 hours in this kid-friendly, interactive experience! Videos, animatronics, scavenger hunts, 4D exhibits and the message of Christ's impact on a small town farmboy. Everyone should take the time to experience Graham's life in this FREE attraction.
