Very interesting and educational museum. Worthwhile to visit. Took me about 2 hours visited with my other 3 friends. We were late bloomer after Billy began his mission. Nice to know more about him and his God called him.

Even if you are not a person of faith, the exhibit on the history of missions is eye-opening given the impact it has had on society generally and in particularly the leading role Christians played in the abolition and other social movements.

This museum's exhibits trace the history of evangelism in the United States, culminating in an in-depth view of the ministry of Billy Graham, a Wheaton College alum. Beautifully-presented, and educational regardless of your religious views. Through the end of September 2016, in the lobby are the works of Makoto Fujimura, inspired by "Silence" by Shusaku Endo, a novel about Christians... More

This small museum on the campus of Wheaton College is a delightful small museum that exhibits the life and ministry of Billy Graham. We have visited a number of times and always enjoy our visits. I would recommend seeing it if you have followed Billy Graham's ministry. Wheaton College is where he attended school.

There was a nice art exhibit in the lobby of the museum, and the staff was friendly. A good history of Christianity in the US, and then a retrospective of Billy Graham's life. Regardless of your religious stance, this man is certainly admirable and interesting.

This was much better than I ever expected. I love Billy Graham and so I was excited to see the museum. We were amazed at how well it was done. You actually feel like you've gone through a spiritual experience by the time you get to the end. I highly, highly recommend it.

This was on one of those wintery snowy days that just called for a suburban adventure. You know one of those times where you want to do something worthwhile yet for only a few hours on the spur of the moment. Anyways this trip did not disappoint. In addition to learning more about Billy Graham and Wheaton College, one will... More
