Billy Graham Library, Charlotte

4.7
Billy Graham Library charts the evangelical minister's rise to worldwide fame through interactive, multimedia exhibits and memorabilia. All of which is housed inside of a 3,720 sq m (40,000 sq ft) barn that served as Graham’s home for most of his youth. You can explore the reconstruction of the Graham family home, which includes many original elements. Take time to reflect in the memorial prayer garden and peruse Ruth’s Attic, a bookstore dedicated to Graham’s late wife. Milkshakes, ice cream and sandwiches are served in the nostalgic Dairy Bar cafe, styled to look like a barn reminiscent of Graham’s farm-based childhood.

  • A very beautiful, peaceful, and respectful place, dedicated to the memory and mission of a remarkable man. You can freely walk the grounds, visit his home, see the graves of Rev.Graham, his wife, and three close co-workers in the ministry. A barn contains exhibits and a gift shop. It's free, the workers there never hit you up for money, there are no donation boxes everywhere. Very low-key and respectful. A nice, pleasant and inspirational stop.
  • A visit to the Billy Graham Library (and grounds) is not anything like visiting a stuffy museum of history. It is full of historical video, pictures, and 'artifacts' relating to the long time ministry of 'America's Pastor'. It was very revealing to our church group to see the breadth and length of his ministry. Very beautiful museum and a moving story!! Such a great man with a unique life The museum is organized very well and filled with good information.There is no entrance fee, but donations are accepted.
