Some old time actors buried in the cemetery, including the last of the three stooges. If you are into air history would be more of a must do. Building architecture is interesting to see. In general it seems the cemetary is somewhat run down. Still...More

The Portal of the Folded Wings Shrine to Aviation was created in 1924 as a shrine to early aviation pioneers. It is located in the Valhalla Cemetery.

The actual museum is only open the first Sunday of the month from 1-3pm. Beautiful shrine to aviation. There is a lovely fountain to see too!

Hidden almost in the center of Burbank is the Valhalla cemetery with the monument to fallen aviators including the Challenger crew. The Portal of the Folded Wing is flat-out beautiful.
