Great history tour of Billy Graham's journey in life. We went as a family and my wife and mother-in-law enjoyed buying some books, cds in the bookstore at the end of the tour. The old artifacts were interesting both in the house Billy Graham grew up in and the Barn Library Museum tour. Make time for both. Be amazed at... More

The Billy Graham library will far exceed your expectations! It is so professionally done. It is not just a tribute to Billy Graham, but rather a testimony to the power of the gospel and to the call on a man's life. God is glorified in this museum. I was moved to tears on several occasions. Took us about two hours... More

While the grounds were beautiful, the push to become one of Billy Graham's followers is a little overwhelming. It makes the assumption that you are not a Christian and need to be "saved" so we found it a little unsettling. It was not the quiet, contemplative place we expected. It is focused on the accomplishments of the founder, so if... More

My husband (he's a senior pastor) & I stopped here on our way down south to see some friends. We were so glad we took the time to go here! Wasn't sure of what to expect, because the name "library" is a bit misleading. It's more like a museum of the history of the Billy Graham crusades and his autobiography.... More

The library is basically a museum, but it also televises many aspects of Billy Graham's life. You walk through each phase, but all the while the story of hi s life is being told while the gospel is being shared. I loved that his childhood home has been moved to the grounds & you get to tour parts of it.... More

I stopped by recently while close by, but if I had made a special trip I would've been disappointed. It was really geared toward Billy Graham and his family's legacy which I expected, but I feel Reverend Graham himself would rather it be about God and not himself. I appreciated that there was a dairy bar with food and reasonable... More

Great place for anyone interested in Billy Graham or Christian Evangelism in general. Obviously the place is about Billy Graham, but it is also an historical look at Christian Evangelism in the last half of the twentieth century to today. Great flow, lots of film and even some neat animatronics at the beginning of the tour. (The cat next to... More

Peaceful (and free) place to visit and learn about Billy Graham's role in modern Christianity. Created by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the site is religious in nature. Expect plenty of sincere, cheerful, and outgoing volunteers able to discuss faith with you if you wish. Interesting artifacts on display; pasta of the museum are guided by video and volunteers, with... More
