Award-Winning Cemetery Tours

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


Private Guided Tours

We offer guided historical Private Tours from late March through October, from 9 am until dark, on every day of the year except for holidays, and as long as a tour guide is available. Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Most guided tours last 90 minutes, are walking tours, and cover about one mile at a comfortable pace for most. We also offer driving tours in your cars, vans, and very small buses. The cemetery does not have public transportation. (Please note: we cannot accommodate large or coach-sized buses due to our low-hanging branches and very narrow roads.)

Please visit the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation’s PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR PAGE for complete information, including our tour rates and how to schedule a tour with us.

Public Guided Tours

We offer guided historical Public Tours from May through October, on several weekends a month. Our tours are scheduled in advance and cover a variety of different themes throughout the summer. The majority are scheduled so visitors can see the sunset and entire city skyline from the memorial for James Whitcomb Riley on the top of the Crown! Discount Tickets can be purchased in advance or you can pay at the gate. There’s no need to RSVP or have a minimum number attend. Our Public Tour Schedule, complete with descriptions, photos, and information about discount tickets, can be found HERE!
