Located on the grounds of the international headquarters of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Billy Graham Library and Museum is devoted to the life and legacy of a man that many people consider one of the greatest Christian evangelists in history.

The galleries in the library showcase many presentations, pictures, music, artifacts, and voices from Graham's lifetime and give proof of the millions of people he has influenced. There are recreations of crucial parts of Graham's life: one of his tent revivals, his personal living room, a television and radio studio he worked in, and even the Berlin Wall. One gallery is entirely devoted to Ruth Bell Graham, his late wife.

From a personal check from a U.S. President and a Presidential Medal of Freedom to a piece of the Berlin wall to , visitors will get the chance to grasp just how much of an influence on the entire world this one man had.

Billy Graham's wife, Ruth, had an affinity for reading, and it shows when you tour the grounds of the library and home site. A bookstore named in her memory offers rare and special editions written by Billy and Ruth Graham as well as an extensive selection of Bibles.

In a prayer garden just off the main entrance, visitors will find the final resting place of Ruth Graham.
