This is a must see especially as a Christian. I cried throughout seeing what God did through the life of Billy Graham. Don't get it mixed up either, this "library"/museum is more about Jesus Christ than Billy Graham. Just awesome!

The house may be tricky but the actual library is wheelchair accessible. The house is most likely accessible due to NC laws but it has only a small portion open to the public.
