My review is based on the cemetery being a tour destination only. Many famous people are buried here but their graves are all but impossible to find. Staff will not tell you where anyone is buried and I could not find an online map. This...More

Beautifully maintained which provides the peace of mind we at times need. The art is stunning and this is an excellent venue for appropriate activities. We have fond memories of the park going back to the late 1940's.

This is a great place to visit, however, you REALLY must know where you're going before you go!!! The must see sights are the Reseurrection Painting & The Last Supper Stain Glass.....

Do not expect help from the staff. They are not allowed to tell you where anyone is buried, and you WON'T be seeing Michael Jackson's tomb. Pictures are not allowed inside. The staff inside was really nice and had only worked there a couple months....More
