There are several tour options available at Hollywood Cemetery, each filled with a wealth of knowledge about the historic site and the famous personalities buried there. Tours are held regularly, beginning in April and ending in November. Specialty tours are also available through The Valentine. If you are planning a group tour, please be sure to contact the cemetery in advance so our office can provide your group with a packet of information, including parking instructions, funeral schedules, and tour route maps. Skateboards and one-wheels are not allowed in the cemetery.
