Well done exhibit. Some animatronics make the exhibit a bit more entertaining. Good for middle school and up field trips, teens and adults. Christmas time is a wonderful time to visit with the added attraction of lights and a live nativity. If you like history and museums, or are interested in Billy Graham it is worth the trip. Don't think... More

Just got back home from the visit and have to let others know....this place didn't feel right. After living in NC for 20 years we finally decided to visit this "library" hoping to ignite our Christmas spirit and bring out the true meaning of this wonderful holiday. First of all, don't go on a weekend if avoidable, but I felt... More

Our group toured the Library after a week of volunteering for Operation Christmas Child. The entire complex is beautiful, well thought out, and powerful in the messages it delivers. Rev. Graham has been used greatly by the Lord and the Library shares that story in a very moving, powerful way.

I'd heard how welcoming and informative this library felt to my peers, so I embarked on what I believed would be both an exciting and spiritual journey. Something about these people and their mission felt off-putting. Exclusionary? I began questioning my Christian faith after this day, and I've been praying ever since that my journey does not end at Billy... More

Yesterday, I suggested to my wife that we visit the Billy Graham Library since the Christmas season is upon us and also because I had heard good things about it. As we drove to the check in gate, we were greeted and sent on through to the parking lot where we saw the iconic Barn with the glass gross in... More

I admire Billy and Ruth Graham. We were so fortunate to be here on Rev. Graham's 98th birthday and enjoyed having birthday cake and signing a banner. This is such an wonderful place to take your time and see how Rev. Graham and his family started with the desire to preach and lead others to Christ. You can visit the... More
