Mount Auburn welcomes hundreds of groups each year, including garden clubs, historical societies, bird watching groups, and conservation organizations. We are happy to accommodate groups of all ages and interests.
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. There is no fee for a self-guided visit.
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.
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. We are not currently taking requests for guided group tours.
