“Could feel God everywhere”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

It's amazing.....as soon as you step onto the property you can feel the presence of God. Gospel music is playing outside, and the grounds are beautifully decorated with flowers. The inside of the building is full of messages by Billy Graham, pictures of the Graham's, and scriptures all over the building. You will never regret spending time here.

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Here you visit Billy Graham's childhood home, and then a 13 room exhibit about his life. We had a group of 4 adults, and 3 children, and we all loved it! They were very kid-friendly with a little quiz they could fill out as you visit each room, then receive a prize at the end. They have a little café, but we did not eat there, so I cannot review that. The grounds were beautiful as well, and all of the staff were knowlegable and kind. I would def go back.

“Beautiful and Inspirational”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The Library is a beautiful testament to God and the great ministry of Mr. Graham. The tour takes you through the life of Mr. Graham, followed by rooms of memorabilia from letters and gifts that he has received from common people to heads of state all around the world.
The book store has a nice variety of books, movies, music, home decor and apparel.
The Dairy Barn offers snack food and season goodies at Christmas. Choose from sandwiches, hot dogs, ice cream, baked goods, and soft drinks.
Try to go around Christmas (week nights are much less crowded near the beginning of December). The lights, music, horse drawn carriage rides, carolers, and live nativity are a wonderful tradition to start with your loved ones.

“Inspirational visit!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

My husband and I were visiting Charlotte and toured the Billy Graham Library. What an interesting and educational experience. I have watched Billy Graham on TV since I was a kid but this tour really discussed his life and his work throughout his life. We toured his home and was treated so kindly by all the people that worked on the property. The music was wonderful and so many of the videos brought tears to my eyes. A must see in Charlotte.
