“Not a place to miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The place is very unique and impressive. If you are in NOLA for sightseeing rather than debauchery, take a tour or go for a quiet, pensive walk. Canal Streetcar and 2-3 minute walk will take you there.

“Rich in History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

I found the cemetery tours to be very interesting and I would recomend that anyone going to New Orleans, should visit as many of them as they can. The history of the cemetery is Rich.

Parking was a little hard to find. Police watching near by for law breakers, The kids loved looking at all the graves and reading the history. Bring your camera!
