Group Visits

Bringing a large group to Boston? Consider a tour of historic Mount Auburn. We can accommodate groups of all ages and interests.

Come to Mount Auburn!

Mount Auburn welcomes hundreds of groups each year, including garden clubs, historical societies, bird watching groups, and conservation organizations. As with all visitors, we ask that groups help us to preserve the tranquility of this special space by observing our Hours and Policies.

Self-Guided Visits

Groups planning a self-guided Cemetery visit are welcome during our normal hours of operation. However, we ask that all large groups register with us a minimum of two weeks in advance of their intended arrival. Please use this form for a reservation. There is no fee for a self-guided visit.

Guided Visits

The Friends of Mount Auburn offers guided tours for groups on a wide range of subjects including history, art, architecture, conservation, horticulture, and history. Tours typically last 90 minutes and are led by a Cemetery staff member or one of our highly trained volunteer docents.

Fees vary depending on the size of the group, day of the week, and time of day. Please see our brochure for additional information on guided tours.  When you are ready to arrange your visit, please fill out this form and a member of our staff will contact you.

School Visits

We welcome students of all grade levels. Mount Auburn is the perfect outdoor classroom for such diverse subjects as natural history, ecology, history, and art. Educators are welcome to visit with their students as a self-guided group or can arrange a guided tour with one of our staff or volunteer guides. Contact us at if you’d like to discuss possible field trip iteneraries or simply complete our Group Tours form.
