Green-Wood Cemetery Open Doors


The Green-Wood Cemetery

Sunday, Oct. 11
12:00pm – 4:00pm

In Person

It’s back! One of Green-Wood’s most popular outdoor events returns with an afternoon exploring of some of the Cemetery’s most impressive nineteenth-century mausoleums, with exquisite stained glass and some curious surprises! Peek inside the elaborate gates of these stone structures to view stunning examples of Green-Wood’s distinctive architecture. At each location, docents will offer a glimpse into the lives of those who now rest in these opulent edifices.

Please note the following restrictions on this year’s Open Doors before purchasing tickets:

  • Masks/face coverings must be worn at all times.
  • A distance of 6 feet must be kept between you/members of your party and others.
  • Visitors must follow instructions from Green-Wood staff and volunteers throughout the afternoon.
  • No paper maps will be provided. A PDF map of the route will be emailed in advance to all ticket purchasers. Directional arrows will be placed on the grounds to mark the route.
  • No trolley service will be available. Comfortable footwear is recommended to walk the Cemetery’s hilly and at times uneven terrain. The entire route will be slightly more than a mile long.

NO EARLY ADMISSION, NO LATE ENTRY. Arrive at the time you selected, tickets cannot be transferred to another time slot.
