Join us for a guided tour of Congressional Cemetery! Over 65,000 people are interred at Congressional Cemetery, ranging from 1807 all the way until the present day. Their story is our story and many of them lived noteworthy and extraordinary lives. Come and learn from one of our expert docents who will share the stories of some of our interred residents in an approximately 1-to-1.5-hour tour of the beautiful and scenic cemetery grounds. This tour takes a broad look at the cemetery’s history and captures the life and times of some of our most notable interred residents.

Please come prepared with comfortable clothing and shoes, as the tours often stray from the main paths.

The Cemetery is open to dogs on Sundays. Please be aware of that off-leash dogs will be on the grounds at the time of the tour.

Reservations are required. $5 donation per person.

Sunday tours begin at 1:00 pm (and in the summer 10:30 AM to beat the heat), rain or shine, and comfortable attire, including footwear, is strongly encouraged as tours often stray from the main paths. Visitors may meet docents at the front gate.
