I'm struggling with this review. I have the highest regard for Billy Graham and his ministry. He is one of the few evangelists who hasn't lost his way or started preaching some warped semi-biblical message. The following criticism is not of Billy Graham, but of the Library. It's as though, when the library was being planned, they got some advice... More

Great stories about Billy Graham. Loved the tour. However, we got there about an 1 hour before closing, and had to rush through it.

Thank you for visiting the Library! We're glad you enjoyed the Journey of Faith tour, but hate that you had to rush. We do recommend planning 2 to 3 hours to spend here between the Library, Homeplace, and grounds. We hope you'll be able to come visit the Library again! More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Billy Graham Library! We learned about his ministry, his family home and roots, and the wide ranging impact his preaching and gospel message had on so many millions of people all around the world even in communist countries!

We toured the library and found the life and family of the Grahams to be inspiring and challenging. The facilities are beautiful, the staff was outstanding, the displays were informative and educational, the lunch we had was delicious. It is worth a few hours to see and hear the impact of Billy and Ruth Graham on our world.

We just loved being at the Billy Graham Library. It tells the story of the pastor with such honor and respect, and even as young adults we stayed here for hours looking at everything. The library also has a beautiful garden outside with flowers and places to sit. The guides are so helpful and kind, and we even got prayer... More

I was very touched by the focus of the Library on Jesus Christ. It was more than a life of Billy Graham, it was what God did and is doing through Billy Graham. I would go again.

Great focus on the career of Billy Graham as well as his message. We went during Christmas and had the added benefit of a live nativity scene with animals that the kids loved.
