We had a tour here and had a guide who was known as the queen of New Orleans but cannot remember her name ( sorry) But how interesting as to why they bury their dead above ground and she explained all about the burial process...More

Came without a tour and that was just fine. Walk through and look at the names and take in the history. Better maintained than many of the others and you can walk back on wonderful Esplanade Ave.

You have to make this location a stop on your New Orleans trip. You can pull right into the cemetery and park along the roads in the cemetery. There is no fee to enter. This cemetery is huge! You could easily spend hours here. My...More

In the lightening tour of New Orleans from the American Queen to our hotel, this was on the itinerary. One is quite enough as it's the background about "why" and "how" that is interesting more than "what" they were buried in. So a good guide...More

We had a guided tour of this cemetery which gave us a historic tour, the tales he could tell. Amazing history and the tombs are still used today by the families.

New Orleans cemetaries are so beautiful and have so much history behind them. Preferred the cemetery in the Garden District though. Much more interesting. We didn't do a tour but would if we went back. We learned a lot of interesting things on our ghost...More

We went with a tour and I’m glad we did. It was nice to hear all the history and story behind the above ground burial tombs. It would not have been as good without the stories. Must be super creepy at night.

While several of the big NOLA cemetaries are in not-so-safe parts of town, this one is in a nice location not far from City Park, the art museum, and botanical gardens. Many of the city tours stop at this cemetary, but we took the streetcar...More

The history is rich and lots of interesting trivia. I enjoyed learning how the tombs were being handed-down to descendants (privately owned with deeds) and how associations own some and members get to use use the space.

And so much fun. We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgable. You can only visit St. Louis # 3 with a guide and hopefully you will have the opportunity to get Sylvia. She was very engaging and really knew her history.
