For years, Congressional Cemetery’s Dozen Decent Docents have consistently offered free Saturday tours of Congressional Cemetery. Now, due to the breadth of expertise and knowledge of our volunteer docents, we’re happy to add Sunday tours on a trial basis this April through October. Our Sunday tours will begin at 1 pm, and will be a more informal look at the history of Congressional Cemetery. Please be aware that the cemetery is open to dogs on Sundays, so please only visit if you’re comfortable with off-leash pups. Docents may pick their favorite stories or give a specialized tour, rather than giving a standard broad look at the cemetery’s history. Join us for a grab bag of history and lore as we try adding weekly Sunday tours to the docket!

Both Saturday and Sunday tours continue to be free, and no reservations are required. Sunday tours begin at 1 pm, and comfortable attire is strongly encouraged. Visitors may meet docents at the front gate.
