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.

  • Absolutelly amazing experience and a great historical recoding of Billy's ministry. I loved seeing all the photos and seeing professionally done videos on his life. It was great seeing family photos and also finding out more about his wife Ruth and their 6 kids. No one leaves without hearing and seeing the gospel, but its not pushy instead so genuine and natural!
  • We love this place! You can easily spend your whole day here! Peaceful walking outside. It kind of blew me away all of the details put into the tour. Very neat place to visit and make SURE you do the WHOLE tour. Worth your time spent. It's also free (unless you want to make a purchase in the library or have lunch in the cafe). A great way to spend a day visiting Charlotte!
  • It was just wonderful. The best part was the leaving, walking through the Cross. You have to go to understand.
  • Feeling uplifted and encouraged how God used His servant to evangelize the salvation message to the world, while observing event I asked what have done to let others know about Jesus and what my dedication be in the days ahead...
  • Very interesting, but they should have also represented some African ministers too in his ministry, Am I to assume that not much was impacted by his ministry over there or what?

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
