Discover Our Award-Winning Cemetery Tours!

We are pleased to offer award-winning public and private guided tours at historical Crown Hill Cemetery.


Public Tours

We typically hold public tours from June through early October on the second, third, and forth weekends of the month. During our Saturday evening tours, visitors can admire the sunset from the Crown, Marion County’s highest hill, which offers a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of the city’s skyline.

For approaching tour dates and times, please see the "Upcoming Events" on our About Us page. Reservations are not required for public tours.

Private Tours

We offer award-winning private group tours year-round, any day of the week (as long as a tour guide is available). With a few exceptions, all private tours are walking tours and last approximately 90 minutes. Most private tours include a trip to the top of the Crown, Marion County’s highest hill, which offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Indianapolis skyline.

Driving tours, bicycle tours, and small bus or van tours are also allowed if you can provide your own transportation. Contact us for more details.

Private Group Rates are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors (55+), and $3 for students 18 and under, with a $50 minimum per tour. While we can sometimes accommodate last-minute tours, tours generally must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a private group tour, please contact Marty Davis at mdavis@crownhill.org or (317) 920-2644.
