The Billy Graham Library and Journey of Faith is a must see. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Since we came on November 30, we were also able to view the live nativity which was very nice.

Absolutely beautiful. The tour was amazing, inspiring and touched my heart. As a history lover, I enjoyed seeing all the paraphernalia on display. One of my favourites was the suit he wore to see the Queen. The gardens are a lovely addition, and the house is a must see. It's maintained so well. Staff are kind, friendly, and accommodating. Didn't get to spend a lot of time at the library because we came late but it had a good selection of books and we bought some. My husband and I stopped to just watch Billy Graham's recorded sermons and he is charismatic and the sermons were very relevant to today. So grateful to visit and would highly recommend a visit here!

This is a wonderful place to visit! I was pleasantly surprised at the level of technology used to make this a very interesting stop. The focus of the library is not on the person of Billy Graham, but on how God used him. His evangelical efforts continue in this museum. It was amazing to see the people and places that Billy and Ruth Graham impacted for Christ. Truly an amazing life and a great memorial to his dedication to Jesus Christ!

Absolutely worth everyones time to visit. Whether you are a Baptist Presbyterian Muslim Buddhist Quaker, believer or nonbeliever, there is no doubt you will take something positive away from visiting. I had watched Reverend Grahams funeral on television like millions of others, never dreaming that I would be drawn in this random. But while picking up materials from a distributor close to the Library what started out as a quick drive through to see it in person and make a few pictures, turned out to be one of the greatest experiences in my life. I had no idea that the Library had been closed for renovations nearly a year and even though the grand opening was a week away the wonderful gentleman at the guard shack invited me in saying they were doing a soft opening letting folks in to work out any bugs before the grand opening. As he lifted the gate and I drove inside towards the place I still had no intention of even getting out of my truck, I had work to do but as I got closer The pull on my heart was way stronger than the 5.0 liter V-8 engine or anything I thought I needed to be doing other than paying my respects in person to the man and woman who gave so much to so many. The greeters is the parking lot, greeters at the door, folks working the information desk, book store workers, EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THE PREMISES WAS super nice, never pushy, genuinely happy I decided to stop in and willing to accommodate me anyway possible to make my visit rememberable . They all succeeded! I want to say Thank You to each and every person, on staff or volunteers , as well as the folks who put together, planned and constructed the exhibits . You all are amazing and The Late Reverend Graham, his wife Ruth are smiling down upon the wonderful work his Ministry is still doing through you! End of Construction Thank you for your patience Ruth Bell Graham Someday you will read or hear that Bill Graham is dead. Dont believe a word of it ! I shall be more alive then than I am now . I will have gone into the presence of God. Billy Graham a Preacher of the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ

A very pleasant surprise stop on our trip. The staff is really friendly and eager to connect and help. The whole exhibition on Billy Graham's life is really well done and worth every second! Would definitely recommend. Not only is informational and entertaining, but it also really straightens one's faith.
