We spent a nice afternoon going through the library, house and walking the grounds. Plan to spend at least 2 hours here and possibly more.
The tour was divided into sections of Billy Graham's life. Starting with his home life as a young boy and moving onto his calling to the ministry, meeting his wife Ruth. Interviews on TV and his meeting with many presidents.
A very moving experience.
There is a gift shop and book store there. You can also eat in the restaurant.
The grounds are very lovely and you can visit Ruth Graham's grave as well as George Beverly Shea's.

This year, we added a special stop to our pre-Christmas traditions list. The Billy Graham Library was such a pleasant surprise. We went with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the sites, sounds, and special features only found at Christmastime. It is a definite choice to my family next year!

Great to understand the teachings of Billy Graham. If you want to learn about his mission and what it took to get to where he is this is a must see while in Charlotte.

Great decision to stop at BGL after pickup up friends from Brazil at the airport. We started with meal. Ended with seeing the talking cow. Watch out for the cat. Beautiful presentation of BG's life. All the glory goes to God.

I cannot say enough about the Billy Graham Library. Tranquil, peaceful, beautiful come to mind. Every single person who works there is beyond pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. The information they have put together about Billy Graham was thoughtful and moving. I feel so blessed to have experienced it myself. I remember him coming through Syracuse, NY in 1989 and having the privileged of singing in the choir for the crusade. It was nice walking through looking at personal things of his and his family. And it was especially nice to visit the graves of his wife Ruth and Beverly Shea.
