An important part of Mount Auburn’s history is its role as a destination site. We take this role seriously and provide amenities critical to our visitors’ enjoyment and comfort. At the same time, we are both a historic landmark and an active burial site, so we ask that our visitors follow some basic guidelines during their stay here.
At this time there is no cycling allowed at the Cemetery. Please park bikes and motorcycles at the racks provided just inside our entrance.
Walk–not jog–through the Cemetery. We welcome baby strollers.
Help us protect our monuments and horticultural collections. Please leave pets and food or drink at home. At this time, only service dogs are allowed in the Cemetery and dog walking is not permitted at Mount Auburn. Monuments are more fragile than they appear; please do not touch them.
If you are planning to film or photograph for commercial purposes, please read our Film & Photography Guidelines.
For wedding photography, please see our Wedding Photography Guidelines.
Bring only natural plant materials for placing at graves within the Cemetery.
At certain times of the year, flags are also permitted – please see our Veterans Flags Guidelines.
Review a complete list of our Floral Tribute Regulations.
